A search for solitude : pursuing the monk's true life by Thomas Merton( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1952, Thomas Merton's renown as the bestselling author of The Seven Storey Mountain was well established. During the years illuminated by this third volume of his private journals, Merton struggled to reconcile his celebrity with his desire for a life of hermetic silence and contemplation. Already at the Abbey of Gethsemani for over a decade, Merton was beginning to grow impatient with the strictures and shortcomings of conventional monastic life. Here he chronicles the search for a more authentic experience of the divine and of community that led him to explore Zen, existentialism, and the exciting developments in Latin American Christianity and literature, which informed his own Catholic spirituality and his views of the great intellectual debates of his time

A brief history of saints by Lawrence Cunningham( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Brief History of Saints follows the rise of the cult of saints in Christianity from its origin in the age of the martyrs down to the present day. Referring to both well-known saints such as Joan of Arc and lesser-known figures like the "holy fools" in the Orthodox tradition, the book ranges over subjects as diverse as the history of canonization processes, the Reformation critique of the cult of saints, and the role of saints in other religious traditions." "While special attention is paid to the Western tradition, Eastern Christianity is also considered. The final chapters outline how the saints may serve as a theological resource, as well as discussing the relavance of sainthood in postmodern culture. The volume contains additional material on patron saints and the iconography of saints in art."--BOOK JACKET
