About the Author

His other words include Inventing Hell, The Complete Francis of Assisi, and The St. Francis Prayer Book.


"An extraordinary gathering of diverse voices vividly articulates Merton's deep impact on a generation of honorable readers. Gleaning profound spiritual life lessons from the monk's art of confession and witness, these reflections by contemplative educators--writing beautifully here out of the roots of their own lives--perfectly commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the death of a master teacher." --Jonathan Montaldo, Editor of The Intimate Merton

"Thomas Merton lovers, rejoice: this collection is a welcome addition to your library, with essays on Merton that are by turns inspiring, enlightening, challenging, eloquent, and bracing. I hope and pray this will introduce a new generation of readers to a man who has influenced countless believers (including this one!). What I Am Living For reminds us why Thomas Merton remains one of the most influential and compelling spiritual writers of the twentieth century--and why he has much to say to readers in the twenty-first." --Deacon Greg Kandra, Blogger and journalist at Aleteia

"Thomas Merton's writings were one of the main reasons I left a job at General Electric and entered the Jesuit order in the late 1980s. His simple concept of the true self--the person we are before God and the person we are meant to be--was a critical insight in my spiritual life." --Rev. James Martin, S.J.

"These essays by contemporary spiritual teachers from Buddhist, Jewish, and Christian traditions reflect on the continuing influence of Merton's life and writing. New and experienced readers of Merton will find the reflections moving and Merton's views classically pertinent." --Bonnie Thurston, Founding member and past president of the International Thomas Merton Society
