Episode details

This episode of Anthony Esolen Speaks is a reading from my book, In the Beginning Was the Word. The scripture reference for this meditation is John 1:10: “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.”

From "The Sacrifice" (George Herbert, The Temple, 1633)
