For more than three centuries both Christians and non-Christians, young and old, have been fascinated by the characters and story of John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress. This deluxe edition features thirty all-new, full-page, color illustrations—taking readers on a visually stunning journey with protagonist Christian as he seeks the Celestial City. While keeping the dignity and beauty of Bunyan’s language, editor C. J. Lovik has updated words and phrases for today’s readers.

We are excited to feature Carolyn Mahaney’s Feminine Appeal for this week’s Trackback Thursday!
Mahaney says, “Isn’t is telling that our culture requires training and certification for so many vocations of lesser importance, but hands us marriage and motherhood without instruction? Fortunately, God hasn’t left us to fend for ourselves. He has provided invaluable wisdom for women from his Word” (pg 20).
Published in 2004, Mahaney explores seven feminine virtues given in Titus 2 that have transformed her life and the lives of countless other women. She identifies with the challenges facing women in today’s world and meets them with the guidance of God’s Word.
Nancy Leigh Demoss encourages readers, “If you are a ‘younger woman,” you hold in your hands a mentor, an excellent guide to spiritual maturity.” Furthermore, “Perhaps you qualify as an ‘older woman.’ You will find in this book a practical tool to help you fulfill your mandate to invest in the lives of younger women.”
Here’s a reminder of how the contest part works: Simply link to the blog post from your blog, leave a comment on Crossway’s Facebook Page, or re-tweet Trackback Thursday on Twitter @Crosswaybooks. There will be three winners picked on Friday morning, one drawn from each medium.
This upcoming release by Kristi and T. Lively Fluharty illustrates the concept of humility by telling the tale of a crime of cosmic proportions: the moon, blinded by pride, fails to see the true source of his abilities—the light provided by the sun. He boasts of his ability to shine, to change shape, and to swell the tides. One day, overwhelmed by a piercing ray of sunshine, the moon repents of his pride, changes his ways, and is happy to reflect the sun’s light.
Tony Reinke says, “I’ve read this book 20 times and I love it! My kids love it! I think any reader of Fool Moon Rising will be compelled by the lively illustrations and hear the unmistakable urgency of its message.” Read his full review.
