In 1948, Thomas Merton, a monk from a Trappist monastery in Kentucky published the story of his life in a book called "The Seven Storey Mountain". The book became an instant best-seller and propelled him onto the world stage. Merton was first and foremost a monk, and he became one of the great monastic figures of the century. But he was also a poet, essayist, translator, cartoonist, photographer, social and political activist, and mystic. His personal and religious struggles have made him a symbol of our search for meaning in the modern world. On the 30th anniversary of Merton's death, scholar and professor Michael Higgins explores the spiritual geography of Thomas Merton.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
