Thomas Merton : Twentieth-Century Wisdom for Twenty-First-Century Living Paperback / softback


Thomas Merton was arguably the twentieth century's most widely published and widely read spiritual writer.

This book explores Merton's prophetic writings and experience as they offer guidance for those seeking to experience God, to simplify their lives, to live more humanly, and to shape Christian community in the face of alienation, consumerism, noise, and technology.

The book includes parts of three previously unpublished conference contributions by Merton on technology.

Exploring Merton's thoughts on monastic renewal, prayer, radical simplicity, ecology, technology, war, peace and interfaith dialogue, Dekar reminds us why Merton was so influential and why he continues to be so.
