Tim Lewis, September 6, 2011 (view all comments by Tim Lewis)
Echoing Silence is a collection of thoughts that Thomas Merton had while struggling between the different vocations of monk and writer. His internal battle with his thoughts and external battles with other monks and writers show us that writing can be in itself a spiritual journey. While showing us that he is by no means perfect, he has a sense of grace to bring love and thought to those outside his Catholic realm. While I don't necessarily agree with everything in his ascetic world, there is still much to learn from his experiences. Recommended for writers and for those searching spiritually.
