Publisher's Summary

New Seeds of Comtemplation is one of Thomas Merton's most widely read and best loved books. Christians and non-Christians alike have joined in praising it as a notable successor in the meditative tradition of St. John of the Cross, the Cloud of Unknowing, and the medieval mystics, while others have compared Merton's reflections to those of Thoreau. New Seeds of Contemplation seeks to awaken the dormant inner depths of the spirit so long neglected by Western culture, to nurture a deeply contemplative and mystical dimension in our lives.

Thomas Merton invites the reader to slow down and listen to a a God who is close by. This book requires a second listen!!

Pure holy inspiration!!!

Work of spiritual art coupled with superb performance which lifts the soul to find true self in God's silence and his word made flesh. Sometimes one feels it is not Merton speaking but God revealed. Read and listened twice and could do several times more with great joy.
