The intimate Merton : his life from his journals by Thomas Merton( Book )

33 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this diary-like memoir, composed of his most poignant and insightful journal entries, The Intimate Merton lays bare the steep ways of Thomas Merton's spiritual path. Culled from the seven volumes of his personal journals, this twenty-nine year chronicle deepens and extends the story Merton recounted and made famous in The Seven Storey Mountain. This book is the spiritual autobiography of our century's most celebrated monk - the wisdom gained from the personal experience of an enduring spiritual teacher. Here is Merton's account of his life's major challenges, his confrontations with monastic and church hierarchies, his interaction with religious traditions east and west, and his antiwar and civil-rights activities."--Jacket

Soul searching : the journey of Thomas Merton( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Award-winning producer Morgan Atkinson's documentary and the companion book of the same title come together for the first time in Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton book with DVD. The documentary DVD, which is scheduled to air on US PBS stations this December, is included in the inside back cover of this new hardcover edition of the companion book. The book draws us into the geographical landscape of Thomas Merton's life in America, a landscape that was intrinsic to his spiritual journey. Containing a considerable amount of rich material unused in the documentary, Soul Searching is alive with the narrative of those who either knew Merton well or passionately care about him: Father Daniel Berrigan, Rosemary Ruether, Martin Marty, Paul Elie, and many others. Their insights are linked to the places - from the Abbey of Gethsemani to the Redwoods Monastery in California, from New York City to Christ in the Desert Monastery in New Mexico - that both nurtured and shaped Merton. The picture that emerges, through both the narrative and vivid photography, is filled with provocative insights into the interior landscape of one of the spiritual giants of modern times."--Jacket
A year with Thomas Merton : daily meditations from his journals by Thomas Merton( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Join Thomas Merton in a spiritual journey as you read selections from his journal. This elegant and intimate daily companion offers his wisdom and spiritual guidance with selections attuned to the seasons and to the movements of Merton's own life - from his ordination as a priest to his retreat to his solitary hermitage, and even to his untimely death in 1968." "Each month is prefaced by one of Merton's black and white photographs or by one of his elegant Zen-style pen-and-ink drawings. Each day of the year offers a short, reading selected to encourage and deepen your own reflections and meditations."--Jacket

The letters of Robert Giroux and Thomas Merton by Robert Giroux( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the time they first met as undergraduates at Columbia College in New York City in the mid-1930s, the noted editor Robert Giroux (1914-2008) and the Trappist monk and writer Thomas Merton (1915-1968) became friends. The Letters of Robert Giroux and Thomas Merton capture their personal and professional relationship, extending from the time of the publication of Merton's 1948 best-selling spiritual autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain, until a few months before Merton's untimely death in December 1968. As editor-in-chief at Harcourt, Brace & Company and then at Farrar, Straus & Giroux, Giroux not only edited twenty-six of Merton's books but served as an adviser to Merton as he dealt with unexpected problems with his religious superiors at the Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani in Kentucky, as well as those in France and Italy. These letters, arranged chronologically, offer invaluable insights into the publishing process that brought some of Merton's most important writings to his readers. Patrick Samway, S.J., had unparalleled access not only to the materials assembled here but to Giroux's unpublished talks about Merton, which he uses to his advantage, especially in his beautifully crafted introduction that interweaves the stories of both men with a chronicle of their personal and collaborative relationship. The result is a rich and rewarding volume, which shows how Giroux helped Merton to become one of the greatest spiritual writers of the twentieth century" --
