One of the most prolific Cistercian authors, Thomas Merton was also one of the most humane and engaging spiritual figures of the twentieth century. He was a man of paradoxes: of words and silence, a contemplative involved in the fight for social justice, and a man of solitude who, by keeping himself in the background, sought to deepen the fundamental human experience. Ultimately, he was a man with only one goal: union with God and communion with humankind. Enjoy your time with Thomas Merton and be prepared to be surprised as you journey with one of the most fascinating figures of out time. Spiritual journeys are best experienced with a guide. Now you can receive guidance from some of the seminal spiritual figures of all time. Each volume in the 15 Days of Prayer series contains: a brief biography of the saint or spiritual leader introduced in that volume; a guide to creating a format for prayer and retreat; and, 15 meditations sessions with focus points and reflection guides.
