Product Description

this book has been critically acclaimed as “a wonderful glimpse of Merton” and “a skillful blend of literary analysis and biography.”

This book commemorates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Thomas Merton (January 31, 2015).
Since it was first published in 1982, this book has been critically acclaimed as "a wonderful glimpse of Merton" and "a skillful blend of literary analysis and biography." Originally titled "The Human Journey: Thomas Merton, Symbol of a Century," this book by Anthony T. Padovano, a noted scholar on Merton, has been revised and updated for a new generation of readers after being out of print for a few years.
Thomas Merton was a man of contradictions: assertive yet elusive, committed to the stability of the monastic life but a wanderer at heart, a man who came to symbolize in a unique way his country and century. Still today, perhaps more than ever, he fascinates us with his spiritual genius and brilliant insights into the heart and soul of humankind. Merton's life was a search on many levels and, as such, it offers readers guidance on their own spiritual quests.
"The Spiritual Genius of Thomas Merton" is a blend of literary and theological appreciation that is critical in the best sense and always relevant. Through an analysis of Merton's major journal and poetic writings, Padovano gives us an original and fresh look at Merton's reconciliation between his inner nature and the life he chose to live. Merton reached out to an astonishing variety of people, indelibly affecting the character of his times, an effect that is present even today.
