Thomas Merton is one of the most famous American Catholic authors of the twentieth century. A prolific writer, Merton published 36 books and collections of poems over the span of 27 years, and has 38 posthumous publications that bear his name. Even more impressive than his voluminous output, however, is his deep spirituality that enraptured generations of people seeking intimate union with God. This is the story of a man who sought God throughout his life and dedicated himself to a life of holiness.

This narration was so clumsy and awful that it almost totally made me want to stop listening. So bad I honest to gosh don't believe it was done by a human but a clumsily computerized robot. Not one, not one name or word that a fairly educated Catholic would know was pronounced correctly...just impossible! However, it is SO terrible that it would almost make it worth the price to listen to it, laugh at the stupid mis-pronunciations, and have a contest with a friend determining what the "narrator" attempted to say.
Obviously, Thomas Merton.
On April Fool's Day, yes. If it was free
over maybe six months...
This is my very first review. I want my money back!
This is a very brief overview of Merton's life so if you just want some headlines this may be perfect for you, but if you want something deeper I suggest you go elsewhere. A good starting point nonetheless.
The information is fine if limited, but the narrator makes listening a frustrating experience. He mispronounces some common words.
Disappointing. This was the information I was interested in, but the writer glossed over it. He shared much information about Merton's youth and rakish behaviour. I wanted to know more about his spiritual life and his time studying other religions.
This is a snapshot rather than a satisfying biographical piece.
