Tomorrow, January 31, marks the centennial of the birth of Thomas Merton!
If you are not familiar with Merton, the monk, poet and social activist, I highly recommend starting with his autobiography, [easyazon_link asin=”0156010860″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”douloschristo-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]The Seven Storey Mountain[/easyazon_link].
In honor of the occasion,
A number of Merton’s books are on sale for Kindle!
