Angels, Barbarians, and Nincompoops…and a lot of other words you thought you knew

Anthony Esolen
TAN Books, 196 pages

Anthony Esolen is one of my favorite writers. This fun book takes a look at etymology – the history of words – in a way that only he can. The book is rich with humor, and examines how rooted our language is in the Christian faith. You’ll learn where a variety of words come from, what they mean, how they have been used and are used today. Along the way you also learn a great deal about Christ and His Church, the Gospels, Dante, Shakespeare, poetry and artwork. Any lover of the faith and of language, words, and grammar will enjoy this book. It makes entertaining bedtime or family reading.
