Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In thirty-seven concise and beautifully written chapters, Thomas Merton explores the meaning of interior solitude and its necessary role in bringing every life to joyous fruition. "What is said here about solitude is not just a recipe for hermits," he writes in the preface, "it has a bearing on the whole future of man and his world."

Synopsis:

The necessity of solitude and silence in every life is the subject of this treasury of insights and meditations by the Trappist monk whose life and writings have had wide influence. A treasure of wisdom for people from all traditions who seek to understand the meaning of solitude. An unabridged miniature edition. Two-color interior.

andyetf, May 30, 2009 (view all comments by andyetf)
A tiny book (3" X 4"), packed with challenging, original insight from one of the most intelligent and forceful spiritual thinkers of the 20th century. Written 55+ years ago, rooted very much in the Catholic (pre-Vatican II) tradition, but showing the wisdom of one who was to become a leader in interfaith dialogue, particularly with Zen Buddhism. The writing is simple but profound. Each of the short 4-5 mini-page chapters offers a rich place to start a day's time of contemplation and prayer.
