More About John Bunyan & Bunyan John
John Bunyan (1628 1688) was born in Elstow, England,
and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he
believed God had done for a special purpose.
John Bunyan was an English Christian writer and preacher who is best known for his allegorical novel The Pilgrim' s Progress, published in 1678. Bunyan' s faith was profoundly influenced by two books owned by his wife: Arthur Dent's Plain Man's Pathway to Heaven and Lewis Bayly's Practice of Piety, and he turned to preaching following the death of his guide and mentor, John Gifford.
In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of
Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years. Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and the most famous, The Pilgrim's Progress.
After his release, he continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War, Visions of Heaven and Hell, and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Holy War?
excellent visual aid Mar 29, 2008
This is an excellent book for those who are " visual people" for whom analogy gives insight into spritual reality. While the author's story is invented - I'd say visionary - he maintains faithfulness to scriptural truth.This book helps a believer to see the world and the fall of man as it truly is - a military coup of Satan.It therefore helps the believer to uncover his works both to enslave mankind and to keep the believer from communion with Shaddai God.For the messianics out there it is pleasant to find the use of Shaddai and Emanuel and the positive light given to the " law of Shaddai". Strange words for the supposedly anti semitic church.
Classic Christianity Apr 11, 2007
This is a must read for any age group. It conveys the truth of the christian faith in a clear and concise manner. This would be an excellent book for a youth group to use.
This is the modern english version Oct 4, 2006
I just bought this edition, and was disapointed to learn that it is an updated, modern english edition of the original. I prefer to read books as they were first written, whenever possible.
From the brief comparisons I've made, it seems that this edition comes across somewhat less colorful than Bunyan's original, as the revisionist appears to have tried to simplify the vocabulary rather than merely updating it.
good read Jul 17, 2006
I read this book for a class but I am glad to have read. This book is a great historical read. I found that it helped renew my defences as a christian.
Solid Allegorical Fiction Nov 15, 2005
This is a masterpiece. Believe it or not, in some ways I found it more invigorating than Pilgrim's Progress. Mainly because the conclusion and progression of the tale were slightly less obvious.
Bunyan masterfully illustrates personalities and the conflict/struggle that is going on.
This is great imaginative fiction with good spiritual application. This would be a great book to go through as a group and study/discuss.
