Merton’s book, banned for forty years, is just as relevant today as it was when it was first written.
It is with solemn purpose that we at RHM add this volume to 2017’s annual reading course for September.
“Writing at the height of the Cold War, Merton issued this passionate challenge to the idea that unthinkable violence can be squared with the Gospel of Christ. Censors of Merton’s order blocked publication of this work, but forty years later if you substitute ‘war on terrorism’ for ‘war on communism’ Merton’s message remains eerily topical.”
