Soul Searching

The Journey of Thomas Merton

Edited by Morgan Atkinson, with Jonathan Montaldo

The Documentary as seen on PBS. Noted by GoogleT as a best book of 2008 Award-winning producer Morgan Atkinson's documentary and the companion book of the same title come together for the first time in Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton book with DVD. The documentary DVD is included in the inside back cover of this new hardcover edition of the companion book. The book draws us into the geographical landscape of Thomas Merton's life in America, a landscape that was intrinsic to his spiritual journey. Containing a considerable amount of rich material unused in the documentary, Soul Searching is alive with the narrative of those who either knew Merton well or passionately care about him: Father Daniel Berrigan, Rosemary Ruether, Martin Marty, Paul Elie, and many others. Their insights are linked to the places-from the Abbey of Gethsemani to the Redwoods Monastery in California, from New York City to Christ in the Desert Monastery in New Mexico-that both nurtured and shaped Merton. The picture that emerges, through both the narrative and vivid photography, is filled with provocative insights into the interior landscape of one of the spiritual giants of modern times.

The Illuminator and a Bible for the 21st Century

Video (VHS)

The longtime scribe to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Crown office used age-old calligraphic techniques to create a modern manuscript: egg yolks, gold, silver, and platinum in the illuminations; goose quills and hand-ground ink on carefully selected calf-skin vellum for the text. Experience for yourself the story of the most extensive scribal commission in the world since the end of the Middle Ages, a story that has not happened for a long time and probably will never happen again.

The Icons of the Easter Proclamation

Charles Rohrbacher

"Exult, let them exult, the hosts of heaven, exult, let Angel ministers of God exult, let the trumpet of salvation sound aloud our mighty King's triumph! Be glad, let earth be glad, as glory floods her, ablaze with light from her eternal King, let all corners of the earth be glad, knowing an end to gloom and darkness." The Easter Proclamation, or Exsultet, is the triumphant song of praise that proclaims "Christ is Risen!" during the Easter Vigil in the Roman Rite. Acclaimed iconographer Charles Rohrbacher has illustrated a one-of-a-kind ritual book: The Easter Proclamation (Exsultet). This CD presents the vivid, scripturally grounded images of his unique work for projection in the sanctuary and use in prayer. The icons of The Easter Proclamation draw on the vivid and poetic texts of the ancient hymn. They depict Holy Mother Church, Moses leading the Israelites through the Red Sea, the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden, Christ the Morning Star and other images from the great story of salvation as proclaimed in this sacred moment. Charles Rohrbacher reverently depicts each of these scenes using classical iconography techniques. Each unique picture draws on the long tradition of Christian icon writing. Charles Rohrbacher has been an icon writer for more than twenty years. He has studied with Orthodox iconographer Dmitri Shkolnik in San Francisco and New York, and with Byzantine Catholic iconographer and Jesuit Father Egon Sendler of the Centre d'Etudes Russes in Paris. Rohrbacher is the former director of religious education and is currently deacon for the Cathedral of the Nativity of Mary, Juneau, Alaska.
