Thomas Merton's life, especially once he had become a monk, was to a great extent one of dialogue with people who were either distant or dead. Rowan Williams looks closely at two such relationships in Merton's life - first with the Orthodox theologian, Paul Evdokimov, and then with Karl Barth, the reformed theologian.

Reviews

"Following a brief Author's Foreword by the Archbishop of Canterbury in which he acknowledges his indebtedness to Merton over the years 'studying for my doctorate with Merton's friend, A.M. Allchin, proved a doorway into still more of his mind and spirit. A few years later The Asian Journal gave me my first sense that inter-religious dialogue could be (and had to be) a matter of spiritual encounter, and still more doors opened.' Rowan Williams arranged these 'engagements' into five chapters, beginning with a paradoxical tribute to Thomas Merton in 'a person that nobody knows.' He concludes this short chapter with words of wisdom: 'The great Christian is the man or woman who can make me more interested in God than in him or her. A paradoxical tribute, but the highest that can be paid.'" --Patrick Hart, Louisville Courier-Journal (October 15, 2011)
