The Pilgrim’s Progress Desert Experience

The Pilgrim’s Progress Desert Experience is a fascinating Christian fantasy novel told through an interesting first-person narrative. The story is set in Egypt and Jerusalem and follows three distinct characters, or perspectives; Heathen, Pastor, and Messianic. Their journey provides ample opportunity for readers to reflect on life and spirituality.

Heathen’s journey to the King of Promise is difficult and his trials and tribulations are thought-provoking and enlightening. He must stay on the Narrow Path, guided by Evangelist and Comforter. He will meet Suffering and Hardship, but his faith will guide him along the way. He often strays from the path, seduced by greed, false-religion, and entertainment. But the desert will test his faith and teach him how to live with Suffering and Hardship.

Author John Bartell writes this Christian allegory in easy-to-understand language so that even the more abstract lessons and ideas are easily understood. This is an intriguing quest story that will appeal to readers who want a book that focuses on the expedition and the lessons learned along the way, rather than describing elaborate sets and backgrounds. The story proceeds at a steady pace, instructing and informing all the while. This is a wonderfully educational book as well, as terms concerning faith are explained to the protagonist by the other characters throughout the book.

This engaging biblical fiction novel represents the religious story of a pilgrim’s journey to the King of Promise, but is set in modern times. One scene in particular caught my attention; “Heathen, do you want to watch a video of the creation of the universe on my phone?”. I certainly do! This book blends religion and modern society in interesting ways and presents a veiled critique of modernity.

The Pilgrim’s Progress Desert Experience, by John Bartell, is a unique book that will appeal to readers looking for an inspiring Christian fiction novel. With its intriguing images of the Bible and a central message focused on religion, it will be loved by readers keen on faith and religion.
