    Book details

This unique spiritual autobiography is the account of the growing restlessness of a brilliant and passionate young man whose search for peace and faith eventually leads him, at the age of twenty-six, to take vows in one of the most demanding religious orders - the Trappists. At the monastery, and within the "four walls of my new freedom, " Merton wrote this extraordinary testament - a document of a man who withdrew from the world only after he had fully immersed himself in it. For this Fiftieth Anniversary Edition, Robert Giroux has written a memoir of how he came to publish The Seven Storey Mountain, and Merton's distinguished biographer, William H. Shannon, has supplied a note for the reader.

"Without a life of the spirit our whole existence becomes unsubstantial and illusory.-Thomas Merton --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

    A bit dated, it was written in 1948, but still a very relevant lesson on faith. I was gripped by it from the start. I truly enjoyed his writing style and honesty. I learned a lot and notice that although I finished the book a week ago, I am still contemplating some of his arguments. Good nourishment for the Christian soul.

    Fantastic book, it is so well written, you feel you are travelling with him. Loved every minute, hugely honest and full of hope. Makes you want to read more of Merton.

    a very interesting and readable book. I haven`t finished it- I`m about three quarter way through but am enjoying it very much. and am not in a hurry to finish it as I am savouring it and making notes as I go. I am reading it as one of a book club and look forward to the discussion and hearing the opinions of other people.

    A wonderfully honest and inspiring autobiography leading from unconventional childhood to a powerful calling to a contemplative life that has inspired people from different faiths.I found it revived my faith and resolve to develop a more contemplative life whenever possible.Truly inspiring, well written and fun as well!!
