Overview

A treasury of wisdom from the influential Christian contemplative, political activist, social visionary, and literary figure.

     The Essential Thomas Merton offers insights into the key themes of Merton's teachings--the distinction between our false and true selves, the modern world, cultural illusions, and the struggle for justice and sanctification. An abridgement of his larger collection, Seeds, this edition features some of his most poignant writings and showcases his mastery of the paragraph. Previously compiled in The Pocket Thomas Merton, this book is now presented in a larger trim size for the first time and includes a new introduction by Robert Inchausti.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

I thought I had read Merton . . . and then I walked into Inchausti's garden of diamonds."—Gray Matthews, The Merton Seasonal
