Description

"Without a life of the spirit," Thomas Merton maintains, "our whole existence becomes unsubstantial and illusory. The life of the spirit, by integrating us in the real order established by God, puts us in the fullest possible contact with reality -- not as we imagine it, but as it really is." No Man Is an Island is a collection of sixteen essays in which Merton plumbs aspects of human spirituality. He addresses those in search of enduring values, fulfillment, and salvation in prose that is inspiring and compassionate. Meditations on certain basic verities of the spiritual life.
