Publisher's Description

In this diary-like memoir, composed of his most poignant and insightful journal entries, The Intimate Merton lays bare the steep ways of Thomas Merton's spiritual path. Culled from the seven volumes of his personal journals, this twenty-nine year chronicle deepens and extends the story Thomas Merton recounted and made famous in The Seven Storey Mountain. A spiritual autobiography of our century's most celebrated monk, here is Merton's account of his life's major challenges, his confrontations with monastic and church hierarchies, his interaction with religious traditions east and west, and his antiwar and civil-rights activities. The Intimate Merton captures the essence of what makes Thomas Merton's life journey so perennially relevant. 12 compact discs in binder. ALSO AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE—PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS
