Here the author successfully adapts John Bunyan’s Holy War into more accessible modern language, without losing the excitement of the story or the meaning of the text.
This allegorical novel depicts the perfect city of Mansoul where everybody lives harmoniously. It only took one rebel, Diabolus, to upset the people of the city and deceive the whole nation. However, King Shaddai and Prince Emmanuel promise to release the people from the power of Diabolus and his men and make them free again.
The book concludes with a very helpful “Who’s Who in Mansoul” listing the characters and their biblical significance, and a short biography of John Bunyan.
This gripping novel contains helpful Christian teaching, and the colourful, vivid, lively illustrations on every page will appeal to children in this age group.
