I’ve read this multiple times and always find new insights into Merton’s mind, heart, and world. This fascinating and intimate account adds perspective to Merton’s contemplative journey and prompted my own visit to the grounds at Gethsemani. A must read for anyone interested in Merton or their own contemplative trek.
Definitely a book that will be read more than once.
Griffin lived in Merton's hermitage with first access to the Jounals and has recreated the final three years of Fr. Louis' life. As the official biographer, Griffin health prevented him from finishing the work and left this as a second draft. The author has a great insight into his friend's monastic life and Merton's soul.
