Item description for Markings (Vintage Spiritual Classics) by Dag Hammarskjold, Leif Sjoberg & W. H. Auden...

An inspirational, intimate account of spiritual struggle is based on the personal journal of the U.N. Secretary-General, recording his spiritual growth, self-questioning, and resolutions from 1925 to his untimely death in a plane crash in 1961. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
Universally known and admired as a peacemaker, Dag Hammarskjold concealed a remarkable intense inner life which he recorded over several decades in this journal of poems and spiritual meditations, left to be published after his death. A dramatic account of spiritual struggle, "Markings" has inspired hundreds of thousands of readers since it was first published in 1964.
"Markings" is distinctive, as W.H. Auden remarks in his foreword, as a record of "the attempt by a professional man of action to unite in one life the "via activa" and the "via contemplativa."" It reflects its author's efforts to live his creed, his belief that all men are equally the children of God and that faith and love require of him a life of selfless service to others. For Hammarskjold, "the road to holiness necessarily passes through the world of action." "Markings" is not only a fascinating glimpse of the mind of a great man, but also a moving spiritual classic that has left its mark on generations of readers.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Dag Hammarskjold was born in Sweden in 1905 and died in Northern Rhodesia in a plane crash in 1961, while flying there to negotiate a cease-fire between United Nations and Katanga forces. Elected Secretary-General of the United Nations in 1953, serving until his death, he was known throughout the world as a peacemaker. He had studied law and economics, but was also widely read in philosophy and literature. His internal struggles remained a private matter between him and God until after his death, when this book of meditations was published, making him posthumously one of the twentieth century's most noted spiritual pilgrims.

Dag Hammarskjold was born in 1905 and died in 1961.

Reviews - What do customers think about Markings (Vintage Spiritual Classics)?

An encounter of a lifetime  Feb 16, 2007
What a privilege to share the inner life of Dag Hammarskjold! The writings are personal and betray the very real struggles we all face and so rarely give word to. This is my second copy of this book and while it is not a literary giant, it is an amazing reflection of the soul of a remarkable man, the markings of his life.
