    Thoughts in Solitude addresses the pleasure of a solitary life, as well as the necessity for quiet reflection in an age when so little is private. In thoughtful and eloquent prose, Merton writes of our inalienable right to solitude and interior freedom. Society, he tells us, depends for its existence on the personal solitude of its members. Thoughts in Solitude stands alongside The Seven Storey Mountain as one of Merton's most enduring and popular works.

Throughout The Christian Life Today, Merton stresses the spiritual necessity of transcending cultural differences.
