Author Info
Thomas Merton
Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk, a prolific poet and prose writer, and an influential peace activist. His spiritual biography, "The Seven-Storey Mountain," which tells of his conversion to Catholicism and finding his vocation, is a classic of the genre.
Praise
Whether talking about the Tao, bhakti yoga, or the Desert Fathers, the author weaves the wisdom of different traditions into the material he is assessing with natural ease, thus proving himself to be a daring pioneer of interspirituality
From the Publisher
Annotation Thomas Merton's last complete book evolved from a 1948 work called WHAT IS CONTEMPLATION? about the importance of contemplation. It was rewritten in 1959 and revised in 1968, shortly before his death. The later versions of the book incorporate Merton's explorations into Eastern philosophy, drawing parallels between Catholic prayer and Buddhist meditation.
