Discussion series concludes with “No Man is an Island”
The “Reading Christian Classics” book discussion series will conclude Thursday, April 30 with Thomas Merton’s “No Man is an Island.” All members of the Salve Regina community, along with friends of the University, are invited to participate.
A recapitulation of Merton’s earlier work “Seeds of Contemplation,” this collection of 16 essays plumbs aspects of human spirituality. He addresses those in search of enduring values, fulfillment and salvation in prose that is inspiring and compassionate. The Chicago Tribune called it “a stimulating series of spiritual reflections which will prove helpful for all struggling to … live the richest, fullest and noblest life.”
Discussions are held in the McKillop Library’s special collections room beginning at 6:30 p.m. and last about one hour. Each participant should furnish his or her copy of the book, read it prior to the session and come willing to share interpretations or comments.
“Reading Christian Classics” is co-sponsored by the Department of Philosophy, the Pell Honors Program and the McKillop Library. For more information, contact Dr. Lois Eveleth, professor of philosophy, at (401) 341-3170.
