Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A modern-day Confessions of Saint Augustine, The Seven Storey Mountain is one of the most influential religious works of the twentieth century. This edition contains an introduction by Merton's editor, Robert Giroux, and a note to the reader by biographer William H. Shannon. It tells of the growing restlessness of a brilliant and passionate young man whose search for peace and faith leads him, at the age of twenty-six, to take vows in one of the most demanding Catholic orders — the Trappist monks. At the Abbey of Gethsemani, "the four walls of my new freedom," Thomas Merton struggles to withdraw from the world, but only after he has fully immersed himself in it. The Seven Storey Mountain has been a favorite of readers ranging from Graham Greene to Claire Booth Luce, Eldridge Cleaver, and Frank McCourt. And, in the half-century since its original publication, this timeless spiritual tome has been published in over twenty languages and has touched millions of lives.

Synopsis:

One of the most famous books ever written about a man's search for faith and peace is now available in a special anniversary edition. The Seven Storey Mountain has been recognized as one of the most influential religious works of our time.

Synopsis:

This beautifully produced commemorative edition includes an account of the books original publication by Mertons editor, Robert Giroux, an Introduction by Mertons biographer, Father William Shannon, and Mertons own Introduction to the Japanese edition.

This book is extraordinary in many ways, the most extraordinary being the fact that Merton didn't want to write it: he did so in obedience to his superiors. It's a great introduction to Merton's life and work, but anyone truly interested in him should also read his personal journals for a more complete picture of this amazing man and writer.
