Is he orthodox in his Catholicism?
I just finished Surprised by Joy and saw his name mentioned.

I read up alittle on him and have come away alittle confused as to whether he was orthodox in his faith.

I see he has his own autobiography on his conversion called The Golden String.
Would anyone be willing to offer a recommendation on it?

Griffiths was a syncretist who tried to create a new religion combining Christianity and Hinduism. Stay far away.

Thanks Doom.

I'll heed that advice.

I grew weary with Merton's other writings, not interested in going down that road again
