Publishers Description

"A Thomas Merton Reader" provides a complete view of Merton, in all his aspects: contemplative, spiritual writer, poet, peacemaker, and social critic. In this closely knit volume are significant selections not only from his major works but from some lesser-known, yet equally valuable, writings as well. Presented here is a living Thomas Merton, expounding through prose and poetry on an abundance of important themes -- war, love, peace, Eastern thought and spirituality, monastic life, art, contemplation, and solitude.
M. Scott Peck puts the writings included here into the context of Merton's life.

Thomas Merton (1915-68), Trappist monk, author, and peace activist, came to international prominence at a young age with his classic autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain. Over the rest of his life he wrote prolifically on a vast range of topics, including prayer, interior growth, social responsibility, violence, and war. Toward the end of his life he played a significant role in introducing Eastern religion to the West. He is today regarded as a spiritual master, a brilliant religious writer, and a man who embodied the quest for God and human solidarity in the modern world.
M. Scott Peck, M.D., is a nationally renowned author and lecturer on the relationship between religion and the science of psychology. One of his most recent books is Further Along the Road Less Traveled.

A Book to Re-read, Enjoy, and ponder time and time again  Jun 21, 2000
Thomas Merton will always be one of my favorite seekers of Truth ( when I read the selections here I find myself not feeling so alone in my search) is a great slection of Merton, not meant to be comprehensive (Merton's output is too enormous for that) you discover Merton the poet, the monk, but overall, the are his passions for the Spanish poets, Eastern Philosphy, Russian Literature, to mention a few...this book has selections that start and end with his "Seven Storey Mountain" the autobiography which placed Merton into the literary limelight to begin with; however the selections in between even incorporate selections from the posthumous "Asian Journal"...would love to see a deluxe edition incoroporating selections from his now published private journals...
Must-have addition to modern theological libraries  May 10, 1999
An interesting, well-organized anthology of Merton's total works. This collection demonstrates the value of having the author contribute to the production of an anthology. Merton's works encompass a dramatic range of theological and literary style, and this anthology deals fairly with each. From the Augustinian Seven Storey Mountain, to Thoureau-like literary reviews and journals, and even to some Harlem Renaissance-like poetry, this anthology has it all. Merton in all his brilliance... a must read, and a must-have addition to any modern theological library, Catholic or not.
Well chosen pieces and a fine balance...  Oct 5, 1998
Thomas Merton was a master of self-relflection style writing and this reader captures that nuance of Merton's being so well that the book reads almost like a diary. It is laid out to follow Merton's life, pulling from the majority of his published works. It's fascinating to watch his more superstitious and youthful ideas about Catholicism slowly turn into a more practical mature discipline. It's also interesting from the viewpoint of a writer, something Merton explicily was whether he liked it or not. Some of the writing is fantastic, magical, while some is dry and self-involved - just as any writer can and will be. Very inspiring. I took this book with me on a retreat to Gethsemani and it made the perfect companion. Well-worth owning even if you have most of Merton's books already.
Excellent foundation for learning about Merton  Feb 11, 1998
This book does provide some of the best writings of Thomas Merton. The editors of the book have given the reader the ability to see the mind of Thomas Merton through a long period of his life. The editors did not only take from Merton's more famous books but they also printed some previously unavailable writings by Merton. My only problem with this book was the limited selection of works concerning Merton's interest in Zen.
