These essays explore the coming together of the active and the contemplative life and the relationship of individuals to society. Merton’s writing is both lively and profound as he leads the reader through the hard questions of modern existence. “Merton was...one of the most prophetic Catholic writers of our time” (New Republic). Preface by Father M. Louis.
