Product Information

This spiritual allegory, first published in 1682, but written some years earlier during Bunyan's imprisonment at Bedford, is one of Bunyan's best known and most esteemed works, of his allegories ranking only behind Pilgrim's Progress . The book's subtitle is given: (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 creative and powerful telling of 'spiritual warfare', the narrative of humanity's salvation (collectively or individually), has many literary and mythic parallels: the human soul (Man-soul) is a city besieged by the enemy, and must be rescued by the divine hero. However, in this case the archetype is wholly Christian, dramatically narrating the same spiritual conflict presented in Bunyan's own autobiographical book Grace Abounding .

NOTE: This title is included in the Version 5 and OneTouch Libraries.
