The Journals of Thomas Merton Volume Six 1966 - 1967.
Exploring Solitude and Freedom.
When Thomas Merton died accidentally in Bangkok in 1968, the beloved Trappist monk's will specified that his personal diaries not be published for 25 years - presumably because they contained his uncensored thoughts and feelings. Now the journals are the last major piece of writing to appear by one of the twentieth century's most important spiritual writers.
This captivating sixth volume of Merton's acclaimed journals traces his struggles to reconcile an unexpected love with his monastic vows. In this book he comes full circle as he recommits himself completely and more deeply to his vocation and with a new and stronger understanding of the nature of both worldly and spiritual love.
