Product Description

Review

"Perhaps the greatest testament of personal devotion published in this century." "The New York Times""The conviction when one has finished ["Markings" is] that one has had the privilege of being in contact with a great, good, and lovable man." W. H. Auden"

About the Author

Dag Hammarskjold was born in Sweden in 1905 and died in Northern Rhodesia in a plane crash in 1961, while flying there to negotiate a cease-fire between United Nations and Katanga forces. Elected Secretary-General of the United Nations in 1953, serving until his death, he was known throughout the world as a peacemaker. He had studied law and economics, but was also widely read in philosophy and literature. His internal struggles remained a private matter between him and God until after his death, when this book of meditations was published, making him posthumously one of the twentieth century's most noted spiritual pilgrims.

Format: Paperback
Without doubt a spritual classic for the last century century and an example of an active interior life surviving intense political pressures and decisions.

I've been a reader of Markings for over 30 years. I have an old battered copy, but wanted to buy a first-time copy for a friend who has just been appointed to a post in the United Nations!

I hope he gets as much pleasure from it as I have. If you haven't looked at it, please do. It will teach you about signposts on life's journey.
