All of us hear about the classics and we assume they&'re great, but many of us are too intimidated to read them on our own. Crossway&'s Christian Guides to the Classics series is designed to help readers enjoy the greatest literature in history with the aid of a gifted teacher to answer questions along the way. Popular professor, author, and literary expert Leland Ryken situates each work in its cultural context, incorporates published criticism, includes brief bibliographies for further study, and successfully evaluates the classic text from a Christian worldview through analytic commentary. This particular volume guides readers through the paramount epic in the English language, Milton&'s Paradise Lost, and showcases Milton&'s understanding of crime and punishment in the events of creation, the fall, and redemption.
