About this product
- DescriptionJohn Bunyan may have authored the most influential book in the English language (other than the Bible) when he penned Pilgrim's Progress, but he also wrote ather dramatic allegorical vel - The Holy War. In this second classic, Bunyan's readers experience the struggles of the city of Mansoul as a fierce battle rages to take control of it. Wrapped into this knife-edge drama is much truth about how the struggles of our souls run parallel to those of the wretched inhabitants of Mansoul. The righteous and horable 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 fall of Captain Resistance is followed by numerous battles and the eventual fall of Lord Incency, until the city is lost. So goes a story of treachery and deceit, foolishness and pride, forgiveness and final redemption. The good news is that there is a happy ending, for this book, as Bunyan intended, is ultimately the story of a sinner saved from ruin by the grace of God.
- Author BiographyJohn Bunyan (1628-1688) was an English Christian writer and preacher, famous for writing Pilgrim's Progress. Though he was a Reformed Baptist, in the Church of England he is remembered with a Lesser Festival on 30 August, and on the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church (USA) on August 29. Bunyan wrote The Pilgrim's Progress in two parts, the first of which was published in London in 1678 and the second in 1684. He began the work in his first period of imprisonment, and probably finished it during the second. The earliest edition in which the two parts combined in one volume came in 1728. A third part falsely attributed to Bunyan appeared in 1693, and was reprinted as late as 1852. Its full title is The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come.
