This documentary examines the life of a modern American monk who was described as part Augustine, part Emerson, part Gandhi. The writings that flowed from his cell examined spirituality (of the East and West), the Cold War, the civil rights movement and the challenges for the individual in the post-modern world. In short, Merton's life embodied many of the struggles of the 20th and 21st century.

Comments about PBS Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton DVD:

Excellent video as you would expect from PBS. Thomas Merton was an exceptional spirit who had a most untimely death. Highly recommend video! I have been to his hermitage and monastery. Cannot say enough about the video and Merton.

Will re-ignite interest in Merton

Comments about PBS Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton DVD:

This is a compelling overview of Thomas Merton's life that is sure to inspire people to revisit his life and readings. It works on many levels; I used it for my RCIA inquirers' class apprehensive that it might be too deep but they loved it. It clearly depicted the stages of spiritual growth he underwent on his journey. Through some great interviews with people who knew him and have written about him, it gives Merton proper credit for singlehandedly reviving contemplative life in the modern world and why we're just beginning to catch up with him. Love the last comment, which is by his biographer.
