Thomas Merton

He's not for everyone, but I'm back reading a few more of his books. (I'm always blown away with how powerfully he articulates principles that mean so much to me.)

I know he probably has many fans but, in the circles I mix, very few people have heard of him, let alone read his work. What a shame.

If you're thinking of entering the world of Merton, I'd highly recommend you start with "New Seeds of Contemplation". A stunningly insightful book.
