About the Author:

Thomas Merton (1915-1968), Catholic convert, Cistercian monk and hermit, poet, contemplative, social critic, and pioneer of interreligious dialogue, was a seminal figure of twentieth-century American Christianity.

Review:

. . . the clear, simple, and unsophisticated summary of Saint Bernard's thought given here is sound for non-specialists, not just for monks and nuns, but for all Christians interested in the life of prayerJean Leclercq

This book makes most valuable reading in itself and also throws light on Merton's own development . . . Bernard would have recognized his sonThe Tablet
