In Paradise Regained, Satan again is on the prowl, having successfully tempted Adam and Eve, and forced their departure from the Garden of Eden. Here he sets out to tempt again, this time Jesus himself, as he comes to the end of his 40 days in the desert. The magisterial poetry of Milton enriches the encounter and, while not matching the greatness achieved in Paradise Lost, provides drama and depth. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 1/23/2014

    " A good book, but in my opinion not on the same level as 'Paradise Lost.' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Yelverton | 12/1/2013

    " Yep, I must agree with everyone else, it's not nearly as good as "Paradise Lost". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn | 11/24/2013

    " Well-composed, but you can tell Milton's heart really wasn't in it. Our Savior is annoyingly perfect in his resistance to temptation. Our Satan seems to have had most of the fight kicked out of him, and lacks the guile and foresight that made him so outstanding in Paradise Lost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 محمد الهاشمي | 11/16/2013

    " Still second best to his "paradise lost" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake Carr | 9/18/2013

    " Very, very insightful. "What kind of things should we seek to know?" "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David | 9/4/2013

    " The archetypal (perhaps prototypical) embarrassing sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan | 8/15/2013

    " Very similar to Paradise Lost. Please see my review for that book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phillip Grant | 7/15/2013

    " A good introduction to Milton but falls short in comparison to Paradise Lost. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 4/5/2013

    " Not as compelling for me as PL...as far as characters go "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tien | 1/24/2013

    " Not nearly as great as Paradise Lost. Satan makes a better protagonist than Jesus. More interesting to see Satan getting off on Eve and Adam doing it than Jesus turning rocks into bread. It's a fact. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 10/14/2012

    " Very interesting literary take on Christ's temptation in the wilderness by Satan. Milton uses poetic license but does well conveying some of the weight behind the temptations, in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 6/15/2012

    " Not as good as Paradise Lost, but still pretty damn good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Skylar Burris | 4/16/2012

    " Unfortunately, Milton's Christ is quite bland in comparison to his Satan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 10/26/2011

    " Oh Milton!!! I loved this almost as much as I loved Paradise Lost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claygreene | 10/14/2011

    " This is the best book I've ever been disappointed by. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patt | 8/23/2011

    " Was good to conclude the series and John Miltons works are very much appreciated by me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob | 5/24/2011

    " All of the preaching that one would expect of a religious fanatic with non of the magnifigant poetry found in Paradise Lost. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jillian | 5/12/2011

    " I actually survived this book. Most difficult book I've ever read. But I made it :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/11/2011

    " I will read it again--for sure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joey | 5/10/2011

    " Whew! Read and re-read it. Difficult, but rewarding. Enjoyed the conversations it sparked. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melinda | 5/6/2011

    " this was a tragic waste of my time ..... I had to wade through the mire of this epic poem and it was hard gruelling work! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 4/27/2011

    " My second time reading this book. My first, as a freshman in a Christian school,older now I feel Im a little better equipped to understand it. An important part of literature, a must read for everyone, no matter your beliefs. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 4/13/2011

    " Difficult Read. I read it during a summer class and struggled a bit. I think it would be effective if taught slowly and/or through pieces as support text, this would be a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Felix | 4/9/2011

    " The epitome of anti-hero- Satan misunderstood. "

About the Author
Author John Milton

John Milton (1608–1674) is considered to be among the most learned of all English poets. After graduating from Cambridge, Milton undertook six years of self-directed study in theology, philosophy, history, politics, literature, and science. He then spent several years writing pamphlets for the Puritan and Parliamentary causes. His incessant labors setting the typeface eventually led to blindness. His masterpiece, Paradise Lost, was composed in memory and dictated to a scribe.
