Product description


In this series of notes, opinions, experiences and reflections - based on notebooks Father Merton kept since 1956 - the Trappist monk examines some of the most urgent moral issues of his day. He brings the reader face to face with such provocative and controversial issues as modern politics, contemporary life and values, communism, the "death of God" and racial strife. There is enough food for thought to arouse the consciences of all who are in a position to do something about them. In addition to these reflections, Father Merton comments on the contemporary thought of such diverse authors as Albert Camus, Mahatma Gandhi, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Teilhard de Chardin and Roland Barth. Finally, humorous anecdotes of life in the monastery are also included.
