Most excellent work by a man who deeply respected the Holy Scriptures and its Great Author, JEHOVAH GOD. The continous use of the Divine Name, the dignity with which the subject of Christ's role in the Eternal Purpose of God the Father and what the Holy Spirit is are treated and the use (more than 9,000 times) of the Bible as the ONLY base and yardstick by which to measure the true doctrine and faith make this book one to own for all the seekers of truth.
Without a doubt in my mind, John Milton was part of the promised seed of the woman and Jehovah's mouthpiece for his time when the Organization had not yet formed. He was (either part of in himself) the "Faithful and Discreet Slave" Jesus mentioned that would provide spiritual food in the appropiate time.
