The Holy War

By John Bunyan

Hardcover. 320 Pages

In The Holy War, John Bunyan masterfully presents the battle for the town of Mansoul (representing man) as Diabolus (Satan) wages war with Shaddai (God the Father), Emmanuel (Jesus Christ), and the Lord High Secretary (The Holy Spirit). It is an allegorical portrayal of the victory of Christ in saving sinners from the clutches of the devil. In this classic Christian work, Bunyan's vivid depictions of battle remind the reader of the reality of spiritual forces warring for the soul.

Few books illustrate so well the words of the Apostle Peter: 'Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour' (1 Peter 5:8). The Holy War also ministers hope because by faith, 'we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us' (Romans 8:37).

Excerpt

'Remember, therefore, O my Mansoul, that thou art beloved of me: as I have, therefore, taught thee to watch, to fight, to pray, and to make war against my foes; so now I command thee to believe that my love is constant to thee. O my Mansoul, how have I set my heart, my love upon thee! Watch. Behold, I lay none other burden upon thee, than what thou hast already. Hold fast, till I come.'
