Thomas Merton

Full Product Description

People of God is a brand new series of inspiring biographies for the general reader.

Each volume offers a compelling and honest narrative of the life of an important twentieth or twenty-first century Catholic. Some living and some now deceased, each of these women and men have known challenges and weaknesses familiar to most of us, but responded to them in ways that call us to our own forms of heroism. Each of them offers a credible and concrete witness of faith, hope, and love to people of our own day.

Thomas Merton was the consummate post-modern holy one: flawed, anti-institutional, a voice for the voiceless.

But he was also a classical traditionalist: centered, obedient, in search of stability. He was a religious thinker of remarkable insight, a social commentator of courage and conviction, and a writer of startling virtuosity. Michael W. Higgins recounts the life of this insatiable wanderer. He explores the various layers of influence and evolution in Merton's thought and spirituality. This book tells the remarkable story of a life that remains to be understood from its beginnings and long after its premature ending.

Thomas Merton by Michael W. Higgins was published by Liturgical Press in May 2014 and is our 45051st best seller. The ISBN for Thomas Merton is 9780814637067.
