Faithful meets a fellow traveler named Talkative.

At first Talkative seems like a wise pilgrim. But after a warning from Christian about his previous experience with him, Faithful asks Talkative some revealing questions about his understanding of the gospel and obedience.

Discussion Questions

1. What is your impression of the character called Talkative?

2. What warnings did Christian provide Faithful about his experience with this man?

3. How did Faithful question Talkative? What was his main concern?

4. In what ways can so-called Christians talk ahead of where they are really living?

5. How can we avoid this trap?
