The Holy War
Full Product Description
Bunyans plan for his readers was for them to experience the struggles of the city of Mansoul as a fierce battle rages to take control of it. However, alongside this knife-edge drama Bunyan wished his readers to understand how the struggles of their souls ran in parallel to the struggles of the wretched inhabitants of that place.
The righteous and honourable ruler Shaddai and his son Immanuel rule Mansoul with justice and equity. But the ruler of darkness - Prince Diabolus - has other plans. With his evil captains and their battalions Diabolus plots the fall and destruction of the once happy city. The first to fall is Captain Resistance as Diabolus knows that there is only one route into the city and that it can only be breached through the permission of the people of Mansoul itself. With Captain Resistance gone the city is laid open to Diabolic lies and the next to fall is Lord Innocency and then the city is lost.
So begins a story of treachery and deceit, foolishness and pride, forgiveness and final redemption. In fact this is, as Bunyan intended it, the story of a sinner saved by the grace of God.
The Holy War by John Bunyan was published by Christian Focus Publications in August 2009 and is our 23259th best seller. The ISBN for The Holy War is 9781845503949.

Holy WarMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
This edition has been presented in the hope and expectation that families will read it together. Guidance is given as to how this can be done, and various explanations of words and old fashioned terms will make the reading easier. I enjoyed the opportunity of reading this title again. I find the many names of the individuals good and evil, so appropriate, and the story of the behaviour of the inhabitants of Mansoul and the followers of Diabolus frighteningly recognisable in our present times. It seems that we have learnt nothing since John Bunyan’s time and need to learn the lessons of this story over and over again. Younger children will certainly need adult guidance through the book, older children will find it exciting and exhilarating. Despite setbacks, Emmanuel triumphs in the end as the Bible teaches us. A classic.
