Those familiar with Merton, and others discovering him for the first time, will all enjoy this stunning evocation of his life and message. Beginning with Merton's early life and conversion, his entry into the Abbey of Gethsemani, and his fame as an author, Forest explores his increasing search for solitude, his emergence as a prophetic voice of peace and social justice, and the fascinating dialogue with other religions that continued until his sudden death in 1968. Enhanced by the most extensive collection of Merton photographs ever published, Living with Wisdom captures the life, writings, and vision of one of the great spiritual figures of our time.
