Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A recapitulation of his earlier work Seeds of Contemplation, this collection of sixteen essays plumbs aspects of human spirituality. Merton addresses those in search of enduring values, fulfillment, and salvation in prose that is, as always, inspiring and compassionate. “A stimulating series of spiritual reflections which will prove helpful for all struggling to...live the richest, fullest and noblest life” (Chicago Tribune).

About the Author

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was born in France and came to live in the United States at the age of 24. He received several awards recognizing his contribution to religious study and contemplation, including the Pax Medal in 1963, and remained a devoted spiritualist and a tireless advocate for social justice until his death in 1968. The Sign of Jonas was originally published in 1953.

mizpah, August 23, 2008 (view all comments by mizpah)
An exploration of the intention of man, helping the reader to understand pure (and impure) intention in prayer and in relationships with god, oursellves, and our fellow man. Merton focuses on love, sincerity, and mercy while dicussing the vocation of a Christian in this life. There is no love without love of god.
