    Often considered the greatest epic in any modern language, Paradise Lost tells the story of the revolt of Satan, his banishment from Heaven, and the ensuing fall of Man with his expulsion from Eden. It is a tale of immense drama and excitement, of innocence pitted against corruption, of rebellion and treachery, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny. The struggle ranges across heaven, hell, and earth, as Satan and his band of rebel angels conspire against God.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    It described who the highway to hell was built, as opposed to the Holy highway mentioned in Bible Prophecy


    What does Frederick Davidson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There's a certain calm madness with his voice that accentuates the words, as though read by an exited mortician


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the demons that were cast into hell were scheming as to how to get God back while discussing the famous "new created world" as mentioned in legend by the heavenly scribes.
    and how to pervert it

    Also when Cerberus was entrusted by the LORD with the key of hell and would be held responsible should any creature depart, there was a struggle in hell against him to get the key. Satan, prevailing with his persuasion won him over, got out crossed thru chaos, ventured many a night and finally arrived into the garden of Eden. Angels were on their guard passing info that something may have happened in hell and that Adam should be put on guard as to the events as well as info about the future.


    Any additional comments?

    The book suggests that the sum total of the fall of man was that there is no "fall of man", merely what the fruit implies....a knowledge of good and evil. That Man still has his power of domination on the earth, his power of the spoken word and control over his thoughts. as before. God still favors and respects what He created, it's merely the internal struggle of Adam's inherited woe within us that suggests otherwise.
