Thomas Merton was one of the most prolific and provocative letter writers of the twentieth century. His letters (those written both by him and to him), archived at the Thomas Merton Studies Center at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky, number more than ten thousand. For Merton, letters were not just a vehicle for exchanging information, but his primary means for initiating, maintaining, and deepening relationships. In this expert distillation of Thomas Merton┬┐s letters, we are offered a unique lens through which to relive the spiritual and social upheavals of the twentieth century, while encountering wisdom that is still relevant for our world today. Available now in paperback, this book is ideal for parish book groups, retreats, spiritual direction, and as a resource for training lay leaders.
