Notes:  "In the 20th century, Thomas Merton, one of Christianity's great mystics, encountered the ancient Eastern mystical tradition known as Sufism. The result was an outpouring of mystical insight and spiritual wisdom. In these thirteen conferences, you will discover what first electrified Merton. Merton will bring you to new and exciting places as he reflects on Sufism and the mystical life."--Container. Introduction by Fr.
