Edward Rice was a close friend of Thomas Merton (1915- 1968) from their Columbia University days. He reviews with strong opinion the turning points and phases of the famous monk's life. The adversities and hardships Merton faced were bad health, primitive living conditions, Church control and Church censorship. These do not flatter the Catholic Church although some will say the monk's vow of obedience trumps everything. Also brought out are Merton's rebellious side as a peace activist and religious maverick. This book was published two years after Merton's passing.
