List of the best Thomas Merton books, ranked by voracious readers in the Ranker community. - I was asked yesterday to recommend which Thomas Merton book I would read first if I was starting out on a Merton journey.
Tulips are not important, they are essential. Yes, sing. Love and Peace, silence, movement of planets. For those who don't know him, Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk, a poet and a social activist best known for his autobiography The Seven Storey Mountain , which for many decades brought huge numbers of young men and, no doubt, women into lives of spiritual contemplation all across America and beyond. I've long had a passion for Catholic transcendentalist writers St Teresa of Avila is my pin-up girl and love books about nuns and monks. I can't pretend that The Seven Storey Mountain was my favourite of these you'll have to go a long way to beat Karen Armstrong's Through the Narrow Gate , but for some reason I stuck with Merton, and my patience has been rewarded a thousandfold. He's the only writer I read pretty much every day.
