Dr. Carol Blessing, professor of literature at Point Loma Nazarene University, provides background and insight into the work and ideas of the Puritan poet John Milton. By emphasizing Milton's educational, political, and religious background, Blessing shows the extent to which Milton's Paradise Lost subverts the traditional epic genre and moves it in new directions.

"Just wanted to let you know that because of AFR, and especially the Our Life In Christ series, I am becoming Orthodox. A parish is building a new church near me and have put out a sign. I've been a Protestant for years, and when I saw the sign realized I didn't know much about Orthodoxy. I Googled it, read a bit, and was intrigued. So then I found AFR and started listening. I now listen to it every day on my drive to and from work. My knowledge and understanding of Christ has grown so much over the past six months. I have now started regularly attending a local parish and meeting with the priest. God bless you."
