A Book to Read and Love: Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander - Thomas Merton

 


A short summary of Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander:

Merton's musings about current events.

My favorite quote from the book:

"We believe, not because we want to know, but because we want to be."


Questions to ponder while reading Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander:

Do you think compassion is a weakness?

Do you question your beliefs?

My thoughts about the book:

A great, philosophical look at the modern world.

Lots and lots of wisdom.

Still very relevant in today's world.
