The Holy War made by Shaddai upon Diabolos for the regaining of the Metropolis of the World, or the losing and taking again of the town of Mansoul is a 1682 novel by John Bunyan. The novel, written in the form of an allegory, tells the story of the town "Mansoul" (Man's soul).

Though Mansoul has rejected the Kingship of Shaddai, he sends his son Emmanuel to reclaim it.
