Bunyan definitely shows a gift for weaving the principles of Scripture into narrative. The story itself doesn't even have to be that convincing to deliver to us the same Truths we learn and Passover in the Bible in a format that is just different enough to slip past our ennui.

For people who like old school battle action, this is a great twist on the real life battle Christians face. Not in the sense of Christian vs Non-Christian, but within ourselves. Our daily struggles and how we face them.
