Item Description...
From one of the 20th century's best-loved Christian writers comes this extraordinary spiritual testament. Thomas Merton (1915-1968) is a man who experienced life to its fullest "in the world" before entering a Trappist monastery. Abridged. 3 CDs.

Outline Review
In 1941, a brilliant, good-looking young man decided to give up a promising literary career in New York to enter a monastery in Kentucky, from where he proceeded to become one of the most influential writers of this century. Talk about losing your life in order to find it. Thomas Merton's first book, The Seven Storey Mountain, describes his early doubts, his conversion to a Catholic faith of extreme certainty, and his decision to take life vows as a Trappist. Although his conversionary piety sometimes falls into sticky-sweet abstractions, Merton's autobiographical reflections are mostly wise, humble, and concrete. The best reason to read The Seven Storey Mountain, however, may be the one Merton provided in his introduction to its Japanese translation: "I seek to speak to you, in some way, as your own self. Who can tell what this may mean? I myself do not know, but if you listen, things will be said that are perhaps not written in this book. And this will be due not to me but to the One who lives and speaks in both." --Michael Joseph Gross

Seven Story Mountain  Nov 4, 2009
This auto-biography of Thomas Merton provides the reader with an indepth view of the life of one of the most prophetic spiritual leaders of our time. Merton wrestled with his "call" to the priesthood and shares his story in compelling ways. The reader is able to walk along side Merton as he reflects on the myriad of life experiences - some into the depths of despair and love and then into the light of knowing where God wants him to be. Merton's story is a "must read," because it gives us insight, in some ways, into our own lives.
This Book will touch your soul, if you are deep thinker of life.  Oct 24, 2009
I love this book, but I come from Irish Catholic back ground. I find this book very moving, because if read this book you wonder how this guy become a great monk/priest, when he lived a sinful life. I love his other works and understanding of the Christian faith, but also other eastern faiths as well. This just a starting point to know much from this man. His life was cut short, but his words will live on forever amen.
Seven Story Mountain  Oct 14, 2009
My copy of this got away; so, I ordered another. I've just read Spong's Jesus for the Non-Religious and loved it. He referred several times to Merton so I decided to get into this again. It is ageless. It is spiritual. It's the story of a quest. Your quest. I recommend it highly
Beautiful, if flawed.  Sep 26, 2009
This autobiography of the early years and conversion to Catholicism of the Trappist Monk Thomas Merton is highly engaging and often quite beautiful in it's descriptions of the value of faith and the the importance of a contemplative life. What I found difficult was the constant condescension toward other faiths, which seemed very strange for a man who would become a champion of ecumenicism, and who wold die decades later on a tour of Asia, where he addressed an interfaith conference of monks.

I was glad to learn later that Merton said he regretted much of this book, and for my own enjoyment I will assume it is this over-eagerness of a recent convert that he regretted.

Beyond this one complaint I can say that it is a beautiful book with value beyond the Catholic world, as well a good introduction to Merton.
a person out of place in this world (yet he truly loved it)  Jul 8, 2009
The writings of Merton have always been challenging. Most people think of monks as those who have withdrawn from the world and all of its problems. This is not the case, at least not for Merton. His monastic life granted him the ability to tackle issues of war, economics, violence, etc. Yet, he was never fully comfortable regardless of where he was, yet found peace amidst the searching for a world more attuned to the way it was created. This book is a masterpiece of an autobiography. It will introduce you to one of the most interesting and inspiring voices of the 20th century.
