An informative and fascinating look at Merton's life and writings by a fellow-Trappist. Pennington describes Merton as “a monk, a mystic yes! A merry, mischievous monk and a modern, muddied mystic. Deadly intent upon becoming a saint what else is there to do knowing that a can of beer is a help along the way.” Father Basil takes us on a whirlwind review through the seasons of Merton's life and work.
