This is one of the best books I have ever read. To read about Merton's journey from basically being an atheist to a devout Catholic is remarkable and inspiring. In the true spirit of every man thinking for himself, he followed his heart and path to God. I recommend this book to anyone interest in learning about an every day individual doing extraordinary things through faith and love.
