Peace in the Post-Christian Era
Full Product Description
—John Dear, author, Living Peace
Writing at the height of the Cold War, Merton issued a passionate cry for sanity and a challenge to the idea that unthinkable violence can be squared with the Gospel of Christ. Censors of Merton’s order blocked publication of this work, but forty years later, despite changing circumstances, his prophetic message remains eerily topical. At a time when the “war on terrorism” has replaced the struggle against communism, Merton’s work continues to demonstrate the power and relevance of the Gospel in answering the most urgent challenges of our time.
Thomas Merton, the most prominent monk of the twentieth century, died in 1968. His ongoing legacy is reflected in Thomas Merton: Essential Writings; Seeking Paradise: The Spirit of the Shakers; and The Thomas Merton Encyclopedia, all published by Orbis Books.
Peace in the Post-Christian Era by Thomas Merton was published by Orbis Books in November 2004 and is our 45014th best seller. The ISBN for Peace in the Post-Christian Era is 9781570755590.
