Product description

Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton draws us into the geographical landscape of Thomas Merton’s life in America, a landscape that was intrinsic to his spiritual journey. Containing a considerable amount of rich material unused in the documentary by the same name, Soul Searching is alive with the narrative of those who either knew Merton well or passionately care about him: Father Daniel Berrigan, Rosemary Ruether, Martin Marty, Paul Elie, and many others. Their insights are linked to the places—from the Abbey of Gethsemani to the Redwoods Monastery in California, from New York City to Christ in the Desert Monastery in New Mexico—that both nurtured and shaped Merton. The picture that emerges, through both the narrative and vivid photography, is filled with provocative insights into the interior landscape of one of the spiritual giants of modern times. Bonus DVD of the PBS documentary by award-winning producer Morgan Atkinson is also included.

Product Reviews

[Y]oung and old, who are looking for a spiritual guide [are encouraged] to read this book.Pastoral Music Soul Searching is an excellent introduction to Merton's life and thinking. Its generous use of well-reproduced photographs, and chatty style, make it very accessible.The Merton Journal Merton speaks to each generation about prayer, social concern, interreligious dialogue, and the search for the true self. Soul Searching helps us meditate on this legacy, and may send many more people back to the books that Merton himself wrote.Commonweal Atkinson and Montaldo draw from Trappist Monk Merton's journals, books, letters, poetry, and photos, offering readers fascinating glimpses into the man beneath his public image.Episcopal Life While the book would not fit into your back pocket it would grace any prayer stool, bedside locker, glove compartment, or student desk. It is a good introduction to Merton and whets the appetite for further reading.The Furrow Thomas Merton was a highly spiritual man who gave much comfort to many people, and Soul Searching is a read for those to who want to be inspired further.Midwest Book Review The book of reminiscences, like the documentary, will surely awaken interest in Merton as an outstanding cultural figure and spiritual pilgrim.Midwest Book Review Following the film release, Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton as a book makes a considerable contribution to Merton studies. Twenty-four well-known Merton interpreters reflect on the monk, the solitary explorer, the social critic, and the man of letters in this engaging volume, thanks to the editorial collaboration of Morgan Atkinson and Jonathan Montaldo. It can be highly recommended to all seekers of God in our troubled times.Br. Patrick Hart, Monk of Gethsemani and Merton's last secretary
