Poet, monk, spiritual advisor, and social critic, Thomas Merton is a unique--and uniquely beloved--figure of the twentieth century, and this little rosary brings together his best-loved poems and prose. Drawn from classics likeNew Seeds Of Contemplation and The Way Of Chuang Tzu as well as less famous books, the writings in Silence, Joy offer the reader deep, calming stillness, flights of ecstatic praise, steadying words of wisdom, and openhearted laughter. Manna for Merton lovers and a warm embrace for novices, this slim collection is a delightful gift.
