A classic from our Peacemakers Booklet series! Available only during the celebration of our 50th anniversary year in 2022! Written by Merton's friend Jim Forest (who passed earlier this year) and drawing heavily upon their correspondence, this booklet explores Merton's beliefs about Christians and war, his life as a monk, and his reactions to world events. Includes the now-famous letter in which Merton counsels Forest, "Do not depend on the hope of results....As you get used to this idea, you start more and more to concentrate not on the results but on the value, the rightness, the truth of the work itself....In the end, it is the reality of personal relationships that saves everything."
