The Celestial Railroad

Nathaniel Hawthorne

Liberal theology, easy believism, and a Christianity with no cross are not new, although they went by other names in the mid-1800s when Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote this allegory.

John Bunyan, in the latter 1600s, wrote Pilgrim's Progress, and is has been a top seller ever since, second only to the Bible in readership. Hawthorne used Bunyan's allegory as a basis for this allegory, revisiting the way to the Celestial City, but this time showing the way as liberal theologians of his day had tried to make it appear.

Any reader familiar with Pilgrim's Progress and today's religious culture in the free world can appreciate Hawthorn's skill and insight into modern Christianity in his day and ours.
