Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was a Trappist monk, writer, and peace and civil rights activist. His works have a profound impact on contemporary religious and spiritual life. Merton is best known for his autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain, and New Seeds of Contemplation, which this book precedes and prepares for. Recent collections of his writings include the seven volumes of his journals, The Intimate Merton, and Dialogues with Silence.

"Provides the best road map to Merton's approach to contemplation and, indeed, to contemplation in general. Anyone interested in the centrality of contemplation in Christian living will treasure this text." - America
