Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
A gifted and complex man, the late Thomas Merton is considered by many to be a pivotal figure in 20th-century writing and spirituality. A Trappist monk, Merton was a voracious reader, prolific writer, great music lover (especially of jazz), and a social activist who believed there was more to the contemplative life than "simply denying oneself." Above all else, Merton was a seeker of truth in all its forms, who believed that "the important thing is the quality of your life - how you live and how you share it with other people." (hosted by Mark Walstrom)
