The prolific religious writer and monk Thomas Merton influenced many important writers during his lifetime (1915-1968), and much of his writing about God, religion, war, and the contemplative life is still in print. He kept a journal, which his longtime editors tidied up and condensed in an illuminating, important book, which is read here by one of his print editors. Merton was an artist--an observer of details spiritual and banal; a self-critical diarist; and a trailblazing, self-disclosing teacher in an era when most men did not talk about themselves. This is a wonderful recording to absorb and treasure, an inspiring glimpse into the heart of one of our most influential spiritual thinkers. T.W.
