TMPS 7162 Rereading Thomas Merton for the 21st Century (Summer: 1 )
This course explores the still-relevant contributions of the Trappist monk and best-selling author Thomas Merton, who was one of the most influential voices in Christian spirituality during the twentieth century. In returning to both his well known and lesser-known works, we will study how Merton's prophetic writings on subjects such as violence, racism, and interreligious dialogue, among other timely themes, continue to speak to our contemporary church and world. Special attention will also be given to the pastoral and ministerial implications of Merton's insights and contributions.
