Product Description

In Life and Holiness, Thomas Merton makes clear that he was a monk who knew the world. Of course, Merton lived for years in the world before he became a Trappist monk. Then, in the monastery, he was deeply engaged in the questions of the day. In this brief and readily accessible work, Merton offers his thoughts on what it means to be holy in the face of the anxieties of our day. "The Christian cannot separate his life from the real world of work and struggle in which he lives", Merton writes.

Publisher's Description

Life and Holiness is Thomas Merton's classic text on incorporating spirituality into everyday life. Merton here makes clear that he was a monk who knew the world.

In this succinct and readily accessible work, he offers compelling thoughts on what it means to be holy in the face of the anxieties of the modern age.
