Seven Mountains of Thos Merton
The only authorized biography of Merton-a New York Times bestseller and a nominee for the Pulitzer Prize-this book was based on interviews as well as Merton’s unpublished writings. New Afterword by the Author. Index; photographs.
I thoroughly enjoyed this biography savoring it as I spent time getting to know an author—who I consider more of a friend—better. I do not, however, recommend Seven Mountains of Thomas Merton for someone who has only a casual interest in Thomas Merton. Better to find a smaller/shorter bio, or better yet, try one of Merton’s many little gems on contemplative prayer. Come to know him first through his insightful writing.
