"There is a reason why the Pilgrim's Progress continues to touch the hearts of millions. Its timeless message grabs its readers and leads them to the foot of the Cross. Jim Winder, like millions of others, has fallen passionately in love with Bunyan because he shares a passionate love for Bunyan's Savior. In his latest CD, Jim has put Bunyan's classic to music, excellent music. This is a labor of love, told with beauty and tenderness, courage and passion, refined by struggles and bathed in prayer. In an age where the culture scoffs that life is meaningless, Jim shows us that it can be a journey to glory. And when so much of our evangelical culture treats this journey as a pain-free sprint, Jim bravely points us back to the Scriptural teaching that it is a marathon, filled with doubts, dragons and burdens. But we are not alone. This CD is a faithful guide for our pilgrim's journey, the hard but right way. John Bunyan would love it!"
Pastor Ray Canatta, Grace Community Church, Bridgewater NJ

Acacia John Bunyan Web Site:
This CD is so nicely done! The music and the presentation are not only Scripturally edifying, which is all important, but the lyrics and music style are tender and beautiful. As a true pilgrim demonstrates in a life fully surrendered, Jim Winder's message and music has "followed HIM, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God." (Luke 18:43) This CD is a credit to John Bunyan's love of the Lord Jesus, to "Come, take up the cross, and follow ME." (Mark 10:21)

Marquis Laughlin, Fellowship for the Performing Arts
"Jim Winder is a remarkably gifted artist whose music penetrates and enriches the soul. His music draws you in and keeps you there."

'The Hard But Right Way' live program is a compelling and moving dramatic performance of a great classic Christian story that's message is able to transcend to today's audiences of the hope we all can find in Christ. The presence of God stirred the hearts and minds of many of our guests at our annual Son Shine Festival through the passionate storytelling, creative visuals and beautifully scripted music of Jim Winder.

The Broken Bread Coffee House recently hosted Jim Winder who performed his program, "The Hard but Right Way-A Pilgrim's Journey." A work based on John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress." Both Jim's musical performance and story-telling were wonderful. Jim's songs, played on acoustic guitar are warm and inviting. His songwriting skills are excellent and his singing voice puts you in mind of James Taylor, though Jim has his own unique style, not derivative of anyone.

Jim's terrific music was blended seamlessly with his retelling of the story of pilgrim's journey through the land of darkness and temptation to his final destination. Jim amazed the audience with his ability to memorize the entire story and to convey it with such emotion and conviction. The audience was truly captivated by his performance for the entire evening.

Most of all Jim's faith and conviction for the gospel, as expressed through Bunyan's tale, was very much evident. It was not only a wonderful performance of a great literary work but a warm and personal invitation to the journey, for those not yet on the road and a great encouragement to those who are struggling as they make their progress.

Making arrangements for the performance was made so easy because of Jim's warm and friendly personality and his desire to glorify the Lord above all else. I unreservedly and enthusiastically recommend Jim and "The Hard but Right Way" program to all. It is an excellent opportunity for outreach and edification. You will be deeply blessed by what Jim has to share!

"Hi Jim, I just wanted to thank you again for your wonderfully contemplative service of music and story as told in your interpretation of the Pilgrim's Progress. It is rightfully said that good music touches the heart like no other medium, a Spirit to spirit dialogue... and your presentation did just that! To choose the hard but right way is to live up to the amazing grace that we have received in Christ Jesus; sheer gift of God!
Grace and peace to you, looking forward to working together again someday soon.
In His love,
Pastor Eusun Kim, Bonton United Methodist Church

The program raised great questions in the mind of the unbeliever. And a great challenge to the believer. It was a very creative way to
communicate timeless truths. The message of Pilgrim's Progress is one everyone needs to hear. And with your program you make that much more
of a possibility. Thank you so much for coming and sharing that great message.
Expecting Christ,
Troy Bramblet

Yay! We love this CD. That this man is so generously sharing his gifts is truly a blessing to the world. He is making a great and useful book even greater and usefuller!!! Thanks, Jim, and thanks CDBaby too - what extraordinary service.

Luisa Perkins

This disc is lovely.
The Pilgrim's Progress is my favorite book. I also love the Gary Schmidt's retelling illustrated by Barry Moser; this disc is the perfect companion to it. My children love Winder's songs, and so do I. This disc has cheered and inspired us on our journeys, literal and figurative.

Werner Goebel

Inspiring lyrics, excellent CD!
A top-notch work of art. Excellent all around: music, lyrics, and artwork. A must have in any CD collection!


Excellent music
The CD is a great combination of powerful words, and nice music. I enjoy listening to it repeatedly.

Julie Dennis

One of our whole family's (teens included) favorite CDs.
This CD is so full of comfort and truth that we gave it to our pastor for encouragement after the loss of his best friend, our Ass. Pastor. Our family missed it terribly and so we ended up purchasing a few at one time, so that we will have the CD to give to others as gifts in their time of need AND we will not be without our own.

Fantastic!!!! Granddaughters even like it!!! Great encouragement in a world of sin.

Our whole family likes this CD!
To begin with, the concept appeals to us since "Pilgrim's Progress" is standard reading for our homeschooled children. Now that we have the CD, someone is playing it constantly. It makes me want to know more about Jim Winder and his family. Our 21-year old son is talking about seeing if his university activities council will try to bring Jim to the campus (ATU in Russellville, AR).


Anyone who listens to this CD will be blessed by it!
I have only listened to the CD completely once and have just started my 2nd round. I was not disappointed at all after having read all the wonderful comments prior to purchasing the CD. We are going to do a Little Pilgrims Progress program. Even though this is an adult version, the songs and message are universal.

Scott Swords

Great. Heavy. Weighty lyrical content and performance.
I like everything about this cd and I can't wait for the next one. The cover picture perfectly matches the mood and tempo of the the music and the christians walk in this world that is not our own. The recordings clarity, fine performance, and worthy lyrics combine into a really great cd.


Great CD
Its gettin real hard to find truly scripturally based Christian music these day's. Jim Winder has definately written some quality Christian music. No hype just quality God glorifyin music.
