Teaching Pilgrim's Progress

I am in Houston for my first General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America. I may or may not have more to post on this experience later.

The reason for this post is to highlight an exciting new resource from Great Commission Publications (GCP). For those of you who don't know, GCP is the publishing ministry of both the PCA and OPC. They are known for producing excellent reformed curriculum. Interestingly, some of GCP's largest clients are baptist churches, but that is a topic for another day.

Anyway, I saw a brief presentation on GCP's latest product which is a full curriculum based on John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. This is great news considering Pilgrim's Progress, is, I believe, the greatest book on the Christian life ever written. It offers not only a clear explanation of God's work in salvation, but a framework for understanding the whole of the Christian life in a fallen world.

I am also excited about the possibilities of using this material with both children and adults, offering parents a wonderful opportunity to engage their young ones in substantive conversation about God and their walk with Christ. Check out GCP's dedicated website for this excellent material and think creatively about the many ways to make the most of it.

And, just in case you were wondering, I am NOT a paid spokesperson. But, now that I think about it, don't you think GCP ought to give me some sort of percentage?
