"This is a fresh approach to Thomas Merton, situating him as an 'apostle' and 'prophet' in American intellectual history. His prophetic gifts were many, but in articulating whatever issues faced Americans, his voice remained faithful to his religious convictions. His strengths, as Robert Inchausti brings out so well, lie in the fact that he could be free enough to be a critic of both Right and Left. The author writes with a deep sense of Merton's own contemplative spirit, and is definitely simpatico. This is a book I wish I could have said I had written--it reflects my own summation of Merton's American Prophecy as we come to the end of this century." -- Brother Patrick Hart, General Editor of The Journals of Thomas Merton and Merton's last secretary"This is the best treatment I have seen of Merton as both social critic and embodied antithesis of postmodernity." -- Curt Cadorette, University of Rochester
