$ 15.99
The Art of Thomas Merton brings together entries from Merton’s journals, extracts from his letters, quotations from his books and his countless articles, and lines from his poetry. But what truly sets this collection apart is the inclusion of Merton’s abstract drawings—exercises in quiet reflection that convey something of the awareness through silence that he was always eager to explore.

The Art of Thomas Merton: A Divine Passion in Word and Vision

A Wonderful Book

I have been studying Merton for several years now and this book is a wonderful addition to my library. His art and especially his calligraphy is fascinating the selections from his writings are well put together by the editor.

The Art of Thomas Merton

I have given a cursory look at this book and am delighted with what I saw. I look forward to more in depth attention when time permits. I love the incorporation of Merton’s art along with the reflection and the anthology. This is an interesting approach to Merton. I loved it!

Some of Merton’s best

This is a book to savor. I’ve read several Merton anthologies. This book contains some of his best “thoughts” usually in one or two sentences. Each drawing s/b contemplated, then readings, then more contemplation on drawings after readings. They draw you into Merton’s thought. Great for meditating!
