The Prophecy of Isaiah is so much more than the excerpts you hear at Christmas. It’s a story of war and politics, of defiance in the face of utter despair, and of faith when everything you believed in—even the city of God—comes crumbling to the ground. In this episode of Young Heretics, Spencer Klavan tells the story of this enigmatic genius from the 8th century BC.

    You have won me. Is this podcast every Tuesday we get to be with you?

    Don’t tell that other Klavan guy, but I listened to yours first today in my list of required listening. 😁 and I simply love him. So that says a lot. 

    Don’t be self-conscious about pronouncing Isaiah. I like Isaiiiiah. Don’t change. 

    Thank you…you are water in a desert, especially in quarantine.

    Have a great day.

    The call of Isaiah is one of my favorite passages in all the Bible.

    Well Done. As an almost non-involved life-long Catholic, you might realize we don’t do the bible, but we have perfected the genuflection. Your historical perspective is marvelous.
