Holy War by John Bunyan
Book DescriptionThe 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. In this book, additional features have been added to assist today's generation understand the book. These will help you to get behind some of the characters and places that Bunyan describes. You will also learn about Bunyan himself through the life summary. Words that particularly archaic in their style will be explained in a glossary at the end of the book. This means that as you enter into the battle for Mansoul the characters will talk like the medieval adventurers that they are and not like modern day tourists. However, you will be able to understand what they are talking about.

Author Biography - John Bunyan
John Bunyan could be said to have authored the most influential book in the English language (other than the King James Bible) - The Pilgrim's Progress. But he has also written another dramatic allegorical novel - The Holy War. Bunyan's 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. Illustrated by Frederick Barnard, D. Linton, W. Small, J. D. Watson and J. Wolf who were among the leading lithographic artists of the 19th century.
