Overview

John Bunyon was an English 17th Christian writer and preacher. He is best known for his allegory The Pilgrims Progress.

The Holy War, made by King Shaddai upon Diabolus, for the regaining of the metropolis of the world; or, the losing and taking again of the town of Mansoul is a book of spiritual warfare. In this allegory an old tinker named Bedford is the central character. He is an independent Baptist. When telling the story of the symbolic battles Bunyan uses actual military tactics, which he may have learned from a soldier in Cromwell's army.

For those of you who walked along with Christian in John Bunyan's classic, Pilgrim's Progress, you will find yourself captivated by another of his allegories in The War for Mansoul. This time Bunyan tells the story of a king named Shaddai who built for himself a country called Universe. Over Universe he placed the angel Lucifer who rebelled and caused other angels to follow. Shaddai brought judgment on Lucifer and his followers and they in turn sought revenge on Shaddai through the town He had built for himself on earth - the town of Mansoul. Thus follows the stirring allegory of man's fall and redemption. I couldn't put this book down, it was so fascinating! I was crying reading Bunyan's powerful depiction of the fight between good and evil in the battle for our souls and the ultimate price Prince Emmanuel paid. I couldn't help but praise and worship God for the victory He has won for us! By the end of this book, Will's answer to Understanding may very well be your own: '"Do you love Him because you have to?" Understanding's probing was gentle;."I love Him because I want to," Will said simply. "And I can never love him enough."'

Ok......it is extremely important that every person in the christian faith read Romans fairly often....it explains salvation. Lets begin our bible study program by reading romans one and everyone posting atleast one observation they make about the text. Before u begin reading, ask God to show u something new that u never realized before. :)
