Pilgrim's Progress study guide recommendations?

A missionary friend family is driving back to the States from, like, Australia or somewhere. They'd like an online Pilgrim's Progress study to work through as they do.

Anyone have a recommendation?

Barry Horner has created a commentary for Pilgrim's Progress that is available for purchase and is also available for PDF downloads (free). I found this quite good and quite thorough. It may need to be adapted for children. I found it very helpful for taking a group of men through the book.

Purchase:

PDFs:

Also, Dr. Derek Thomas has preached an excellent series of sermons through it. Very edifying! You can download them here (there's also a downloadable map there too):

Hey gang - sweet Dan was kind enough to post this for me :-)

I appreciate the links - what I would like, however, is instead of a commentary - which I can find plenty of - is an in-depth study guide kind of thing. Will check out the links posted.

Chapel Library has a study guide under Doctrine using Pilgrim's Progress. It can be found here:

Enjoy.

I believe answers in genesis, you know, that crack pot young earth creationist outfit, has an unabridged, dramatized version on CD. I haven't heard, just seen the box, and it looks to be good.

AiG has one of the best guides on Pilgrim's Progress. You can't get it online, but you might be able to get it at a Christian bookstore should you stop by one on your way. You might also see others there too.

I have not read it, but Spurgeon has a work titled Pictures From Pilgrim's Progress subtitled "A Commentary On Portions Of John Bunyan’s Immortal Allegory". It can be downloaded for free at Grace-eBooks.com along with a slew of other resources.

Thanks for all these links, I didn't know about these sites and resources either. I've just started reading Pilgrim's Progress again after several years (this time by audio recordings, free MP3s from Librivox), and these extra resources will definitely supplement as I'm reading along.
