Are either of these people must-avoid? If so, why?

Handle Merton with care. I know many good priests who like early Merton, but he was edging more and more into syncretism with Eastern (pagan) spirituality as time went by.

I'm not as familiar with Nouwen.

Merton’s earlier stuff is good.

I suggest staying away from everything else.

Which titles by him are good, which are not?

Thank you. I was going to go looking for that later. It has a helpful list of works at the end.
