GETTING STARTED
Read your Bible First

If you enjoy novels, consider reading "Pilgrim's Progress."  There are many good novels to be read; howver, one should have a quiet time with the Bible before one considers reading a novel that may seek to convey an idea contained within the Bible.   A novel (or anything else) is judged by the Word of God, not the other way around.
