Dalla quarta di copertina:

The third volume of Thomas Merton's journals chronicles Merton's attempts to reconcile his desire for solitude and contemplation with the demands of his new-found celebrity status within the strictures of conventional monastic life.

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was the author of many books, including 'New Seeds of Comtemplation, Life and Holiness, The Sign of Jonas, Mystics and Zen Masters,' and the bestselling and critically acclaimed autobiography of his early life, 'The Seven Storey Mountain'.

Lawrence S. Cunningham is chair of the theology department at the University of Notre Dame. He is the editor of 'Thomas Merton: Spiritual Master' and the author of many popular books on theology and spirituality.

"Few readers who encounter this remarkable book will come away unchanged."
-PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"A rich introduction to [Merton's] vivid imagination."
-BOSTON GLOBE

"The trick is always to find the spiritual deeply embedded in this world, and to discover our own eternal dimensions in the midst of our foibles, failures, and sometimes neurotic idiosyncrasies. We have no better guide in these things than Merton, and you couldn't ask for a more lively writer."
-THOMAS MORE, author of 'Care of the Soul'

"Delightful… brilliant, social, political, and personal commentaries."
-NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"When all the journals are published, it is likely that they will take a place with the famous journals of Henry David Thoreau, G. M. Hopkins, Edmund Wilson, and perhaps be seen as an American version of St. Augustine's 'Confessions."'
-CATHOLIC NEWS SERVICE

Descrizione libro HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2003. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. New edition. 202 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Inexorably life moves on towards crisis and mystery. Everyone must struggle to adjust himself to this, to face the situation for now is the judgment of the world. In a way, each one judges himself merely by what he does. Does, not says. Yet let us not completely dismiss words. They do have meaning. They are related to action. They spring from action and they prepare for it, they clarify it, they direct it. -- Thomas Merton , August 16, 1961 The fourth volume of Thomas Merton s complete journals, one of his final literary legacies, springs from three hundred handwritten pages that capture - in candid, lively, deeply revealing passages - the growing unrest of the 1960s, which Merton witnessed within himself as plainly as in the changing culture around him. In these decisive years, 1960-1963, Merton, now in his late forties and frequently working in a new hermitage at the Abbey of Gethsemani, finds himself struggling between his longing for a private, spiritual life and the irresistible pull of social concerns. Precisely when he longs for more solitude, and convinces himself he could not cut back on his writing, Merton begins asking complex questions about the contemporary culture ( the world with its funny pants, of which I do not know the name, its sandals and sunglasses ), war, and the churches role in society. Thus despite his resistance, he is drawn into the world where his celebrity and growing concerns for social issues fuel his writings on civil rights, nonviolence, and pacifism and lead him into conflict with those who urge him to leave the moral issues to bishops and theologians. This pivotal volume in the Merton journals reveals a man at the height of abrilliant writing career, marking the fourteenth anniversary of his priesthood but yearning still for the key to true happiness and grace. Here, in his most private diaries, Merton is as intellectually curious, critical, and insightful as in his best-known public writings while he documents his movement from the cloister toward the world, from Novice Master to hermit, from ironic critic to joyous witness to the mystery of God s plan. Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was a Trappist monk, writer and peace activist. His spiritual classics include New Seeds of Contemplation, The Sign of Jonas, Mystics and Zen Masters and The Seven Story Mountain. Codice libro della libreria AAR9780060654795
