Reviews - What do our customers think?
Merton never ceases to touch my deepest thoughts and emotions!  Feb 16, 2008
I have read a number of Merton's works, including: The Seven Storey Mountian, Thoughts in Solitude, and No Man is an Island. I was first introduced to his writings by a parish priest and friend over ten years ago, and have remained permanently touched, consoled, challenged, and moved by Merton. To be given the privilege to reflect daily on writings from his own personal journals is a blessing and an insightful window into the heart of a tremendously inspired man. I highly recommend this book to anyone, particularly perhaps those first "getting to know him."
However, these meditations are particularly more powerful AFTER having already read the Mountain - since you will be able to see the dates of his writing and perceive them in even greater context. After only a few months of his meditations, I so very hope to have the humble privilege of reading from his published journals directly.
 
A Spiritual Disappointment  Nov 18, 2005
I am admirer of Thomas Merton and his writings. Being a fan of his work and finding inspiration in it, I was disappointed with this book. Rather than serving as a means of spiritual enlightenment, this book comes off as poetry and miscellaneous scribblings. There is very little here of spiritual substance. The writing itself is not particularly bad. However, most people do not buy a Thomas Merton book for random poetry without context. They buy Merton's for the religious context. Why would a book of daily meditations not acknowledge the religious holidays on the appropriate days? Because this is a collection of rare writings published more than thirty years after his death, the book borders on being exploitive.

There are many great works by Thomas Merton with great meaning that foster spiritual development. This is not one of them. This is merely a collection of journal reflections with less than the desirable amount of spiritual substance.
 
Like a Daily Journal  Sep 19, 2005
The excerpts read like passages from his daily journal. They are out of context. They can be quite mundane. It might be 3 paragraphs about his living situation, or where something has been moved. If you are looking for a daily devotional reader, this is not it. I would rather recommend Seeds of Contemplation which is an excellent collection of spiritual readings.

Yes, read Merton. But this is not the best collection of his work.
 
Daily Meditations from a Thoughtful Man  Jan 6, 2005
Thomas Merton is one of the great spiritual writers of the twentieth century. His works such as NO MAN IS AN ISLAND and THE SEVEN STOREY MOUNTAIN provide enduring reflections on a journey of faith and devotion.

This volume contains selections from his journals arranged to be read as meditations and contemplation. Each offer insight and grace for the reader seeking to develop a closer connection with the Creator.

The illustrations - Merton's own photographs and drawings - offer additional sources of reflection. This is a fine book and provides a course of guidance throughout the year.
