Philosophy & Religion • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1983

Jonathan Montaldo interprets Merton's work on enduring values, fulfillment, salvation, and the relationship between faith and human spirituality. Montaldo conveys complex ideas with simplicity and an impeccable delivery. The first essay on spiritual love is considered a classic. Montaldo gives a polished performance when he reflects on man's relationship with God, man's relationship with others, and why love can only be kept when it is given away. Other themes touch on hope, conscience, freedom, and prayer. Montaldo's delivery of Merton's material on Christian humanism and reciprocal love gives the listener food for thought. This well-done series of spiritual meditations provides a wellspring of enlightenment and encouragement. Fans of Thomas Merton will enjoy the flowing prose.
