Quest for Celestia
Although I am quite partial to the depth and the charm of The Pilgrim's Progress, Steven James' Quest for Celestia was different enough to stand on its own two feet without needing to piggy-back off of Bunyan's classic.
Quest for Celestia draws a Wise rating for presenting a story which is entertaining, suspenseful, and inspiring without being tarnished with immoral or dishonorable elements.
Quest for Celestia, A Reimagining of The Pilgrim's Progress,

It is a Book of Blood, a book of life. He is called to leave his hometown of Abbadon and journey to Celestia. He soon becomes aware of a deeply rooted, infected black lump on his neck for which he at first blames the Book of Blood. He must figure out whether he has it in him to venture to Celestia and how to get rid of the painful growth. THEMES: faith; testing; journey; friendship; social pressure; temptation

REFERENCES TO AND GENERAL ATTITUDE TOWARD GOD: In this allegory, God is portrayed in the character of King Kiral. He is kind and gracious and good, but that doesn't mean that His followers do not experience hardship and adversity in this life. As the Bible, our Book of Blood, tells us that the heirs of God suffer with Christ so that we may be glorified with Him. (Romans 8:17)
And consider this: "the suffering of this present age are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us." (Romans 8:18)
[See also 1 Cor. 1:5; 2 Tim. 2:3; 1 Peter 3:17, 4:12,16, 5:10 ]
"For to you it has been granted for Christ's sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake" Philippians 1:29
