In Merton and Sufism The Untold Story, a Complete Compendium, editors Ron Baker and Gray Henry have included the best of Merton's poems, lectures, and scholarly essays on the subject. A photo-essay demonstrates the similarities between Sufi and Christian practices. Baker is a former editor of Parabola: The Magazine of Myth and Tradition and Henry is a teacher of comparative religion.
