This is the twenty-first and final episode in Eric Ludy’s epic summer Daily Thunder series drawing on the legendary life of Alfred the Great. In this particular episode he explores the idea of “the æstel” — a kingly gift given to Alfred’s men in order to help them better read and understand the text of the Bible. Alfred himself proved to be an æstel to his nation, to the world, and even to the generations that followed him. Alfred was a great king, but that is due to the fact that he lived with the sole purpose of bringing glory to the Greatest King — Jesus Christ.
