Selected and introduced by a leading scholar, here are key writings of one of the 20th century's most admired spiritual writers, Trappist monk Thomas Merton. Merton's work reflects a living encounter with the tradition of Christian wisdom as well engagement with the burning questions of our world: peace, the quest for meaning in the face of absurdity.
