Contextualized to the urban environment and written using contemporary language, Christian's Quest is a fresh retelling of the classic allegory, Little Pilgrim's Progress.
Targeting urban youth primarily between the ages of 8-12, this book follows the journey of Christian, an African American boy, as he travels from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City. Christians' companions are predominantly African American characters placed in familiar settings to which urban youth can easily relate.
Christian's Quest comes loaded with helpful features: discussion questions, an appendix of unfamiliar words, an allegorical key, and realistic black and white ink illustrations throughout. These tools ensure that the reader has all he or she needs to understand the story behind the story -the Gospel message in all of its relevance to our everyday lives. Young readers will come away with a healthy sense of adventure, as well as be strengthened for their own spiritual journeys.
