Description

The Vision of Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton's vision of life and faith was broad and all-encompassing. It ranged from the Hebrew prophets to the peace movement, from the Desert Fathers and Mothers to contemporary Buddhism, and from literature to science. And it found expression in diverse forms—poetry, prose, journals, letters, and photography.

This collection of essays by such distinguished Merton scholars as Christine Bochen, Lawrence S. Cunningham, Jonathan Montaldo, Patrick F. O'Connell, and William Shannon, was compiled in honor of the late Robert E. Daggy, longtime director of the Thomas Merton Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

Reflecting Merton's diverse interests and talents, the collection includes articles on Merton's view of faith, his monastic commitment, his relationship with his father, his interest in quantum physics, the role of nature in his spirituality, his poetry, and his dialogue with the Eastern traditions. Written by the editors of the recently published The Journals of Thomas Merton, these articles offer new insights into the complex and fascinating life of this great spiritual leader. Merton's words continue to have special meaning for so many. In this exceptional collection, all his readers will discover much to enrich their awareness of Merton and to deepen their own spiritual lives.
