Publisher's Summary

Acting as narrator and retreat codirector, author Anthony T. Padovano shares selected aspects of Merton’s life story, inviting us to get in touch with our own stories, our own spiritual journeys. The retreat is an invitation to meet God in the ordinary events of the day. Padovano traces Merton’s biography but deals with it in terms of the values and vision it engendered for himself and others.

    "Needed today more than ever"

    In today's world of instant gratification and the desire for social acceptance, Thomas Merton reminds us of the truest meaning of life which is the interior life.

    "Refreshing reflections"

    A book that should be taken to heart. A beautiful collection of stories that are organized and presented so beautifully about the life of a man that one can't help but love.

    Story
    "Eminently Repeatable"

    Once you listen to the Merton bio (roughly, the first half) the remaining sessions have a great deal of deep material you will want to listen to repeatedly, for meditation and reflection.

    a narrator with some personality. I'm not sure if he was a computer or a real person

    The subject is fascinating


    How could the performance have been better?

    Someone else narrating


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
