Thomas Merton was my entrance into Christianity several decades ago. However, the denomination to which I belonged was nervous about Catholicism, so I set him aside. A number of unexpected spiritual twists and turns connected me with James Finley's work and reconnected me with Merton. So this audiobook has been a delight to me because it radiates both Finley and Merton. I listened slowly, often repeating sections, making notes, sitting with the ideas, at times reduced to silence or tears. I enjoyed the quiet cadence of Finley's delivery. The book deeply moved me.

The narrator is a contemplative - his voice alone gets you there. The book is well-crafted, profound, and ... sparkling!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book hit a real personal note with me, in the sense that I have experienced some of the anguish in love that Merton speaks of, so it made me laugh and cry however it brought a lot of hope to my heart.
