After being deceived by the evil ruler Diabolus, the city rejects the rule of King Shaddai, and falls deep into the swamps of sin and despair. The Holy War was written in 1682.

The Holy War, John Bunyan's fourth work of major importance, appeared in 1682. Although The Pilgrim's Progress has always been the most popular of Bunyan's numerous works.

Now also he remembered the story that Mistrust and Timorous told him, of how they were frighted with the sight of the lions. There, they say, there is no death; and there I shall dwell with such company as I like best. For, to tell you the truth, I love Him because I was by Him eased of my burden; and I am weary of my inward sickness. I would fain be where I shall die no more, and with the company that shall continually cry, "Holy, holy, holy!" Charity talks with christian.

In ‘The Holy War’ Bunyan returned to allegory If Bunyan had written nothing else, ‘The Holy War’ .

In ‘The Holy War’ Bunyan returned to allegory. As a piece of literature the book is in no way inferior to the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress. If Bunyan had written nothing else, ‘The Holy War’ would have sufficed to establish his claim to a place amongst the masters of English prose. As an appeal to the conscience it is not a whit less effective than the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’; but in the power of seizing and retaining the reader’s attention it is scarcely so successful. Of stories, I well know, there’s divers sorts, Some foreign, some domestic; and reports Are thereof made as fancy leads the writers: (By books a man may guess at the inditers.

It needs to be noted that this review is NOT for the Whitaker House abridgment. That work is actually quite well done, and I have come to enjoy it as a way to ramp-up to the original. It is a very nice read with helpful chapter divisions; a good place to start!

The one star review is for the abridgment for "modern readers". It lacks the introduction poem, and replaces words like "crucified" for hanged. This is done in a crucial place where the allegory illustrates the crucifixion of the flesh. This editing seems to be done by some one perhaps not familiar with Bunyan or his work.

I did have to buy a copy of this book it to find this out, and I asked the seller to update the product description, but to no avail.

Here is a copy of the unabridged book from Amazon. The print is a bit small, but these are the real thing: The Holy War: Made by Shaddai upon Diabolus for the Regaining of the Metropolis of the World or the Losing and Taking Again of the Town of Mansoul

This book has blessed many with a basic understanding of human psychology and the true nature of sin and our opposition.

Although I have read this book numerous times before, and had given it away to someone in need, I still enjoyed it immensely.
I heartely recommend this book to any born-again Christian who enjoys reading good conservative literary material. However, I recommend that the reader be quite knowledgable on the Bible because John Bunyan has used allegories to describe the war that goes on in every human: the war between God and Satan over the human soul. If you, dear reader, have ever read "Pil-grim's Progress" by John Bunyan, then you'll understand the necessity for being up on your Bible knowledge. John Bunyan did not write these books to be entertaining, he wrote them with the purpose of being spiritually helpful in understanding what every believer goes through. I myself am a born-again believer since 1975. There is a great deal of literary "junk-food" that tries to pass as being Christian, but is as shallow as a child's wading pool. The "Holy War" is more than "meat and potatoes", it could be considered "gourmet" reading for a mature and hungry Christian soul.

Do you read stories to your children at bedtime? Do you find it a challenge to obtain books that teach and cause your children to actually think about what they are being read? This book is a must for those families. So much opportunity to talk about what is going on in the story. The story takes place about a city (Mansoul) that was tricked into defying its Ruler (Shaddai) and receiving a new ruler (Diabolus) who only brings the city great harm. Shaddai sends His Son (Prince Emmanuel) to deliver them. Battles are fought. Certain personalities are defeated like the "Election Doubters" and discoveries are made as to how the bad guys (Lord Anger, Mr. Sedition, Mr. Heresy, Lord Lasciviousness, Lord Deceit and others) work their mischief. This is a great book! If you read one chapter a night to your children they will beg you to read a second one........"Please!" The author (John Bunyan) also wrote many other books. His most famous is the great "Pilgrim's Progress". I highly recommend it, as well.

This book, written in the same manner as 'Pilgrim's Progress,' (which most believers are more familiar with), depicts what transpires within the heart and mind of every believer. While the narrative depicts the Town, or Corporation of Mansoul as the primary location, what the Town of Mansoul is symbolic of is the inner life of each man and woman called to follow Christ, and the battle that each one of us must wage within, in order to actually do so.
While 'Pilgrim's Progress' is more widely known, 'The Holy War' delves into where the battle-ground lies, and how to be an 'overcomer.' From a heavenly perspective, it matters not whether we live in the 1600's, or the present day, time is irrelevant as it relates to the Holy War that every believer is engaged in. I strongly recommend reading this insightful little book.

John Bunyan produced a real classic when he penned this allegorical story. I doubt if anyone will believe me if I place it one step ahead of his other writings which I have read. The plot is easy to follow, the characters are easily identified, and the story line is fast moving. If you are a John Bunyan fan, and you do not have this one on your libary shelf, you are missing the best of the best.

the print is miniscule.
My vision is fine, but this book has the text squeezed onto the pages in teeny print with small margins.

This was a gift for a friend. She said she and her son have really enjoyed the book.
I always have enjoyed to read John Bunyan writings and this one is no exception. This allegory of the Christian life is wonderful and eye opening. Good for kids too!
