Across the Rim of Chaos: Thomas Merton's Prophetic Vision

£14.99

Product description

"In this fatal moment of choice in which we might begin the patient architecture of peace, we may also take the last step across the rim of chaos"
Forty years on these words of Thomas Merton continue to resonate. Once again we find ourselves in a world trying to navigate the choices between the challenge of building peace and the possibility of continued conflict - ever closer to the rim of chaos.
This prayer of Merton's and its relevance to the world at the beginning of the twenty-first century, is the starting point for this wide-ranging collection of essays by contributors from the UK, Europe and North America. The essays were originally presented as papers at the Fifth General Meeting and Conference of the Thomas Merton Society of Great Britain and Ireland.
