    After reading MIlton's Paradise Lost, I thought "Man I wish I had had something like this when I was a English Literature student." This guide is a Christian Cliff Notes. It does everything Cliff Notes do from a Christian perspective. It is a shame that a "Christian version" is needed but the reality is that one is. It is no secret that the secularization of our culture has led modern academia to cut out many of the obvious Christian themes from past literature.

    You will not find a better guide that covers Milton's Paradise Lost than this one. It reviews and covers ALL of the epic poem. This is a Christian student's goldmine.
