Description - Seeds by Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton, the Trappist monk whose writings became an inspiration to Christians and other religious followers around the world, was a highly influential spiritual thinker and writer as well as a prophetic social critic. His writing brought together the candour of Thoreau with the moral vision of Gandhi. Though he lived as a monk, he was deeply involved with the intellectual climate of his times: his teachers included such intellectuals as Mark Van Doren and Lionel Trilling; his regular correspondents included thinkers and activists from Czeslaw Milosz and Aldous Huxley to Coretta Scott King. Here is the perfect introduction to the full spectrum of Merton's writings, a collection of short pithy excerpts that illuminate the greater body of his work like flashbulbs.
