Abstract:

"Survival or Prophecy? contains the correspondence exchanged between Dom Jean Leclercq, a French Benedictine monk and scholar from the monastery of Clervaux in Luxembourg and Father Thomas Merton, an American Cistercian monk of Gethsemeni Abbey in Kentucky. Their correspondence over twenty years is a fascinating record of the common yearnings of these two monks. Full of learning, human insight, and self-depreciating humor, these letters capture the excitement of the Catholic Church in the era of the Second Vatican Council - and the perennial appeal of the life of monastic solitude."--Jacket.
