Excellent book. If you liked The Pilgrim's Progress you will love this one as well.

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.

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. :)
