If you like Merton, you'll love hearing his voice. I have no comment on the contents of his lectures. Here are two problems you should be aware of, and I give this 3 starts rather than 5 for these reasons:
1. Misleading title. The De Divinis Moribus is by Pseudo-Aquinas; it was almost certainly not written by Aquinas himself, no matter how much it reflects his style of thought.
2. The Introduction by Fr. Ciorra says something false. At the end of his life, Aquinas did NOT say "Burn the Summa." He said "All I have written is like straw." These are very different. He never said the Summa was false; he never disavowed it; he just compared it to what pigs eat, and hey, what are we compared to God?
