Join Thomas Merton in a spiritual journey as you read selections from his journal. This elegant and intimate daily companion offers his wisdom and spiritual guidance with selections attuned to the seasons and to the movements of Merton's own life -- from his ordination as a priest to his retreat to his solitary hermitage, and even to his untimely death in 1968.
Each month is prefaced by one of Merton's moving black and white photographs or by one of his elegant Zen-style pen-and-ink drawings. Each day of the year offers a short, provocative reading selected to encourage and deepen your own reflections and meditations.
A Year with Thomas Merton will inspire both devoted Merton fans and those new to his unique brand of spiritual thought to immerse themselves more deeply in the rich flavors of their own spiritual journeys.
