The author began the practice of Zen meditation a decade ago under the tutelage of a Jesuit priest. This book is the fruit of his spiritual journey. Thomas Merton and Thich Nhat Hanh were and are two of the foremost spiritual writers of their times. They met only once. "Individually," says Robert King, "they are important, but considered together they may be even more significant. For although their lives developed independently of one another and took quite different forms, they shed light on each other in wonderful and unexpected ways. What binds the two is the theme of contemplation and action - a form of religious practice that could serve as a unifying paradigm for the world's religions in an age of globalization".

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Recommended for general readers and lower- and upper-division undergraduate and graduate students."
W C. Buchanan, Choice, June 2002

"King writes well and his personal approach is evident throughout the book."
Bonnie Thurston, The Merton Seasonal, Winter 2001

"Not a dry, academic thesis, this book is something of a conversion story. This book is the fruit of King's spiritual journey."
Ecumenism, December 2001

"A timely in-depth look at how Merton and Hahn succesfully integrated their spiritual and political lives. King uses his considerable analytical and research abilities to create a work that is comprehensive and insightful as well as personal and global in its conclusions. King is a good storyteller but more importantly he deeply understands the historical significance of both Merton and Nahn."
Springs Magazine, January 2002
"King sees in Merton and Thich Nhat Hanh 'a new kind of spirituality that I believe may be the best hope for religious renewal in our day.' With great enthusiasm the author summarizes the unique aspects of their writings. We affirm the author's salute to Merton and Thich Nhat Hanh as global heroes who have bequeathed to us the lineaments of a slowly burgeoning engaged spirituality and interfaith dialogue movement."
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Health, December 2001
