Banyen's Description: 

In Thomas Merton, Essential Writings, Christine Bochen has performed a wonderful service to all who know and will come to know Merton through his writings. She presents his works in the framework of his vocation -- the call to contemplation, the call to compassion, and the call to unity. These calls are the essence of his vocation which is an archetype of all vocations. Through the carefully selected excerpts from his writings she presents insights for reflection on our own calling, which is no less than a personal version of Merton's vocation. Christine succeeds in reaching a deeper level of understanding why Merton's appeal is so universal and opens the door to approaching Merton in a new way.

Thomas Merton, Essential Writings will facilitate teaching Merton in academic settings and also serve as one of the best introductions to Thomas Merton for those who are looking for a place to start.
