A new edition of the teachings of one of the 20th-century's Christian authors. Here Thomas Merton covers a diverse range of subjects including faith, spiritual wonder, the night of the senses, and renunciation. The text moves the reader through the traditional phases of contemplation, and gives an idea of what to expect as the spiritual path unfolds, inviting us all to cast our awful solemnity to the winds and join in the general dance.

Although Merton's famous Seven Storey Mountain didn't do anything for me, I really loved this book. I picked it up because I heard it was being studied in some prisons which intrigued me. Now I wish I owned a copy so that I could take more time, savor each chapter and try to learn more about contemplation. If you are interested in the possibility of connecting more intimately with God, this is an excellent book.
