Tony Esolen is one of our finest writers

I think one of the reasons for that is that he has faced life with sacrificial love for his autistic son and has learned deeply the grace of God through him.  You can tell, reading Esolen, that this is a man who thinks and loves deeply.  A good man and a good writer.

    Beautiful. I don’t think “one of our finest writers” is an overstatement or hyperbole. If anyone reads the Magnificat I highly recommend Esolen’s essay, “The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail” in the August issue.
