The Trappist monk, social critic and ecumenist Thomas Merton (1915–68) produced an extensive body of writings, through which he continues to intrigue and challenge readers. In this study the Dean Emeritus of St Paul’s Cathedral asks what meaning we should give to Merton’s contradictions and discontents, as well as considering how he speaks with a prophetic voice in areas of contemporary concern, such as war and peace, abuses of power and the freedom of the individual. Foreword by Rowan Williams.
