The Pocket Thomas Merton (Shambhala Pocket Classics) (Abridged / Paperback)
This pocket-sized treasury of wisdom from the influential Christian contemplative, political activist, social visionary, and literary figure is abridged from the larger collection Seeds by Robert Inchausti (Shambhala, 2002).
Thomas Merton (1915–1968) was a Trappist monk, spiritual director, political activist, social critic, and one of the most-read spiritual writers of the twentieth century. He is the author of many books, including The Seven Storey Mountain.
"I heartily recommend purchasing this book, not merely to add to one's shelf of Merton collectibles, but to read it, stunned by its beauty. It glitters with sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, each flashing with extraordinary power. Everything fits and radiates here. I thought I had read Merton . . . and then I walked into Inchausti's garden of diamonds."—Gray Matthews, The Merton Seasonal
