Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Day was a convert to Catholicism in 1927 and cofounder of the Catholic Worker. Influenced by many sources and people, including the Bible, the Rule of St. Benedict, Jacques Maritain, and Thomas Merton, Day lived a life of work and prayer in service of the poor. Theologian Merriman uses archival sources, correspondence, and interviews to study the effect of these influences on Day's spirituality and her response to the social, economic, and spiritual turmoil in the mid-20th century United States. A dynamic supplement to her life, this scholarly but accessible study does justice to Day and the Catholic Worker movement. Recommended for religion collections and large public libraries.
