Publisher's Description

“Merton gives us the idea that it is OK to travel the long path…to be confused, quirky, a doubter…. He leads us to believe that maybe we are better than we think we are—if we want to be better.”
—from the introduction
In his search for God, Thomas Merton wrote on timeless themes and questions we still wrestle with today. Simplicity, nonviolence, honesty, mystery, and even death and eternity—these topics and more permeated Merton’s writings. This book distills the wisdom of Merton’s dozens of books and voluminous journals into the enduring themes most relevant to readers today.

He was the director of publications for Abbey Press, and prior to that, director of marketing for St. Anthony Messenger Press. He is also the author of A Retreat with Desert Masters: Thirsting for the Reign of God; A Man's Guide to Prayer: New Ideas, Prayers & Meditations from Many Traditions; and A Retreat with Benedict and Bernard: Seeking God Alone—Together.

Endorsements

"Merton's real autobiography is in his personal journals. They reveal an uncaged mind ceaselessly churned by contemporary events and culture. We find him turning old answers into new questions,"
---Newsweek.

Editorial Reviews

Linus Mundy does a masterful job of sifting through a spiritual master's journals and giving us wisdom to live by. Even if you've read Merton before you will appreciate and benefit from the profound insights in this gem of a book. Highly recommended.
—Michael Leach, author of Why Stay Catholic? Unexpected Answers to a Life-Changing Question

Simply Merton is like a conversation with a good friend about a shared passion for seeking God through the written word. This book relates not only Merton’s lifelong discernment by examining the recurring themes from his journals, the author also invites his readers to join him in delving into the same themes along the path of discerning God’s presence in all our lives. Like so many other readers and seekers whose lives Merton touched, Linus Mundy identifies on many levels with this Trappist monk. With him, we discover that Merton’s search is ours. His destiny awaits us all—quite simply.
—Br. Francis de Sales Wagner, O.S.B., Saint Meinrad Archabbey

Simply Merton has made me think more than any book I have read in ten years. Linus Mundy presents Merton in a clear, reader-friendly way, but nothing that is Merton will leave you with simple answers. Mundy shows Merton opening fifteen doors that lead into the vast space of God. As each chapter ends, you realize you have just found a new beginning. Then you know how Merton felt.
—Father David M. Knight, author of Nuts & Bolts of Daily Spirituality: Practical Steps to Draw Closer to God
