Notes:  "While many have encountered Thomas Merton through his bestselling spiritual autobiography The Seven Storey Mountain and books on contemplation, few are familiar with his writings on the most vital social issues of our day. Now, this course introduces you to a new side of the Trappist monk. As you explore both famous and lesser-known writings, you will discover how Merton's exploration of timely topics continues to speak to our contemporary Church and world."--Container.
