An intensely personal devotional book from Thomas Merton, the ultimate spiritual writer of our time, showing his contemplative and religious side through his prayers and rarely-seen drawings. The only Merton gift book available.
Dialogues with Silence contains a selection of prayers from throughout Merton's life--from his journals, letters, poetry, books--accompanied by all 100 of Merton's rarely seen, delightful Zen-like pen-and-ink drawings, and will attract new readers as well as Merton devotees. There is no other Merton devotional like this, and the paperback edition will be elegantly designed and packaged.
Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was a Trappist monk, writer, and peace and civil rights activist. Merton's works have had a profound impact on contemporary religious and philosophical thought. He is best known for his autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain and New Seeds of Contemplation.
“This is a charming and welcome addition to the Merton corpus, giving us a glimpse of Merton the artist.”
“Whether you’re a long-time Merton fan or need an introduction, Dialogues with Silence is a great unveiling.”
“[These drawings and prayers] reflect a devotional life stripped of pretense, open to God’s surprises.”
“Casts new and thought provoking light on [Merton’s] finely written prayers...highly recommended.”
“...a glimpse of [Merton’s] journey never before seen. Merton fans will certainly welcome this new addition.”
“Helps the reader enter Merton’s spiritual vision and participate personally in the monk’s encounters with Silence.”
