Publisher's Summary

First published in 1682, John Bunyan's allegorical novel The Holy War is a classic of Christian literature whose spiritual insight rivals that of even his most famous work, The Pilgrim's Progress. It tells the story of Mansoul, a utopia built to exalt the greatness and honor of its creator and leader, King Shaddai. However, when the wicked Diabolus, a former high servant of Shaddai's and the king of the blacks, assaults Mansoul, the town forgets its benevolent king and falls under his iniquitous rule. With the citizens of his beloved city lost to sin and vice, Shaddai sends his son, Prince Emmanuel, to deliver them from Diabolus' tyranny.
An epic tale of good versus evil, The Holy War is not only a masterpiece of religious literature, but also an entertaining and engaging story for all listeners.

The Holy War

This story could be the virtual reality behind today's headlines. I thought the temperament of the narrative was done in the 16th century style without the poetic language of the King James version. Nevertheless the timeless tactics of spiritually evil forces at work against good are the same today as they were when this was written. The good news is that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."

Nit quite "A Pilgrim's Progress"

It was a great read and makes a Christian thinks about how we go about day to day. Backsliding is easy because it happens silently a small bit at a time until we are engrossed by sin.
