Divine Discontent : the prophetic voice of Thomas Merton
Call Number: BX4705 .M542 M67 2014
Merton was a Trappist monk, writer, contemplative, social critic, pacifist, jazz lover and (in the context of world faiths) ecumenist whose sudden, premature death in unexplained circumstances prompted a further surge of interest in the man and his work. His extensive writings, many only recently available, provide the basis for a fresh examination of his story, permitting Merton to speak for himself whenever possible, but enabling also an analysis of his abiding fascination and the discontents -- human and divine -- that dominated so much of his life. The author inspires us to look again at our preconceived ideas about the natural world, the prevailing culture, abuses of power, questions of war and peace, contemplation and action, institutions and the freedom of the individual -- and the search for God
Soul Searching : the journey of Thomas Merton
Call Number: BX4705 .M542 S68 2008
Morgan Atkinson's DVD Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton is just a preview of the more extensive interviews found in the book by the same title. As a companion to the DVD, this book engages us in perceptive and sometimes humorous insights into Merton's life and the prophetic importance of his works for the world today. Selections from Atkinson's interviews with twenty-four notable Merton scholars and friends are organized according to four phases of Merton's life and spiritual journey in a way that augments all the Merton biographies and articulates his message in the context of his, and our, everyday lives. from Robert Toth, Merton Institute for Contemplative Living, Louisville, Kentucky
