Book Overview

Thomas Merton is often considered the most prominent Christian contemplative of the twentieth century, but he was also a political activist, social visionary, and literary figure whose writings combine the candor of Thoreau and the moral vision of Gandhi. Here is a remarkably accessible introduction to his work: a collection of a short, vivid excerpts arranged in four parts so as to parallel the journey of a seeking soul in the modern world.

- Real and False Selves distinguishes between our real selves, a deep religious mystery known entirely only to God, and the identities we take on in order to function in society.
- The World We Live In provides a spiritual context to modern life, moving from a stark rejection of its empty promises to a deep compassion for its tragic limitations.
- Antidotes to Illusion reflects on contemplative practices that can serve as the allies of our real selves in the battle against illusion: silence, solitude, meditation, prayer, charity, and faith.
- Love in Action explores the role of the contemplative in the modern age and the challenges and pitfalls of living a life of active love.

Merton's startling critique of a society driven by technology and rampant acquisition, the politics of good versus evil, and the self-deluding complacency of the spiritual lifestyle demonstrate beyond doubt that his writings are as urgent today as they were in his lifetime.
