This is Merton at his best, applying ancient wisdom to the longings of our age through thoughtful commentary on Scripture and writers of the Western spiritual tradition. This book distills Merton's own reading and long experience with contemplation.

"Another beauty by one of my favorite authors"
Balanced, clear advice on one's prayer life. Though aimed at monastics, it's very useful for us plain old folk.
"Good for relaxing, pondering."
I listen to books at night to fall asleep to. This was nice for that. Made me feel calm.
"Dark and light with Thomas Merton"
a beautiful, memorable book, the narrator delivers it well. I often thought paragraphs were as powerful as were chapters, so even struggling listeners will reach the bright light and not be left alone for long.
