After learning a hard lesson, Christian makes his way to the Narrow Gate. He meets Goodwill and rehearses the challenges of his journey before leaving for the house of the Interpreter.

Discussion Questions:

1. Why is the character called Goodwill?

2. What is the significance of the arrows which are shot at those trying to enter the gate?

3. Christian reviews his journey with Goodwill. Which lesson is the most instructive for you?

4. What was Goodwill’s hope-filled message?

5. What do you love about Pilgrim’s Progress at this point in our journey?
