"Although these pages have been written for monks," Merton says, "they will have meaning for all religious and indeed for all Christians, since the monastic life is traditionally regarded as the pure Christian life." In this early work, Merton urges monks to keep alive in the world that spiritual atmosphere without which all that is good and sane in human culture will die of asphyxiation. "In the night of our technological barbarism, monks must be as trees which exist silently in the dark and by their virtual presence purify the air." The book contains a number of photographs by the author.
