This fascinating biography chronicles the life of Thomas Merton, the Trappist monk who became one of America’s most compelling spiritual figures. He was a prolific writer whowas committed to the Civil Rights and Peace Movements of the 1950s and 1960s, with a passion for bridging the differences between the great religions of the East and West, an unlikely ath for a priest who pledged himself to a life of silence and prayer.
