Synopsis: Having embraced a life of solitude in his own hermitage, Thomas Merton finds his faith tested beyond his imagination when a visit to the hospital leads to a clandestine affair of the heart. Jolted out of his comfortable routine, Merton is forced to reassess his need for love and his commitment to celibacy and the monastic vocation.This astonishing volume traces Merton?s struggle to reconcile his unexpected love with his sacred vows while continuing to grapple with the burning social issues of the day ? including racial conflicts, the war in Vietnam, and the Arab-Israeli conflict ? visiting and corresponding with high-profile friends like Thich Nhat Hanh and Joan Baez, and further developing his writing career. Revealing Merton to be ?very human? in his chronicles of the ecstasy and torment of being in love, Learning to Love comes full circle as Merton recommits himself completely and more deeply to his vocation even as he recognizes ?my need for love, my loneliness, my inner division, the struggle in which solitude is at once a problem and a ?solution?. And perhaps not a perfect solution either? (11 May, 1967).

About the Author: Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was a Trappist monk, writer and peace activist. His spiritual classics include the bestselling The Seven Storey Mountain, New Seeds of Contemplation and The Sign of Jonas. Christine M. Bochen is professor of religious studies at Nazareth College at Rochester, New York. A founding member of the International Thomas Merton Society, she edited the fourth volume of Merton's letters, The Courage of Truth.
