Book - 1993
Rate this:
In Ace of Freedoms George Kilcourse explores the range of Thomas Merton's writings as embodying a Christ-centered spirituality. More specifically, the book traces the development of the well-known Trappist monk's explicit and implicit christology, which, Kilcourse claims, can best be discovered within his poetry where one finds personification of the true or inner self. Throughout, Kilcourse demonstrates that Merton's understanding of who Jesus Christ is and what he has done for humanity proved to be intimately connected with two other dimensions of Merton's experience: the quest of self-identity and the use of autobiography as dialogue, in which he voices the discovery of his deepest identity, empowering readers to wrestle with their own spiritual identity.
