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. 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 Pilgrims Progress.
After his release, he became the pastor of a church in Bedord, England and continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War; Bunyan's Visions of Heaven and Hell and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.
Customer Reviews For "Holy War, The: An Allegory By John Bunyan Presented in Modern Language (Pure Gold Classics Series)"Write Your Own Review
I like this book a lot. The translation is easy to read and full of helpful footnotes which is a testament to the translator's diligence and to Bunyan's Biblical and literary knowledge. The story is healing to read and full of examples of good teaching and admonitions, plus a couple of battle scenes, which is no surprise as the book is called Holy War. Worth a look if you'd like some more allegory after Pilgrim's Progress. "Grace Abounding", Bunyan's autobiography, is also worth a look.
