Product Description

Grateful acknowledgement is expressed to the Merton Legacy Trust and the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University for permission to reproduce the calligraphy of Thomas Merton for the cover artwork.


About the Cover Illustration: What title could possibly suit this image, printed by Merton with his hermitage technology: paper he had at hand, bottled ink, found materials? Is it a veiled moon, an immersed Zen circle, a looming, revolving energy that looks at us as we look at it? There are few finer images from the hermitage studio. It speaks from Merton's sense of wonder to our own.
Roger Lipsey, author of "Angelic Mistakes: The Art of Thomas Merton"
