In Bread in the Wilderness, Merton looks at the psalms as poetry; in this book he regards them as prayer. Guiding the reader through the more representative psalms, he explains why the Church also considers the psalms as the best way to praise God.
Thomas Merton (1915-1968), Catholic convert, Cistercian monk and hermit, poet, contemplative, social critic, and pioneer of interreligious dialogue, was a seminal figure of twentieth-century American Christianity.
Phyllis Mitchell3 Stars Out Of 5April 13, 2010Phyllis MitchellThis is an interesting book written by a good writer. However, the book was more theological in its approach. I suppose I expected more of a disection of the psalms and how they were developed and used in various situations.
