Thomas Merton: Master of Attention. by Thomas Merton, compiled by Jonathan Montaldo. Choosing to Love the World.

When 'The Seven Storey Mountain' was first published, Merton was hailed as a new, contemporary spiritual voice and became one of the most popular and successful writers and commentators on modern religion and spirituality. But althoughMerton wrote over forty books on the importance of reflection and prayer in our lives , we have known little about Merton's own 'way of prayer'. This book fully explores the inner life of perhaps the best-known writer on prayer of the twentieth century.

I wanted a book that combined Thomas Merton with Simone Weil. Since she was so focused on 'Attention', it served its purpose.

If you're a Merton fan, then you will very likely find this small book of reflections a valuable resource - both for providing insights into TM and as a aid for prayer. Waldron, with great skill and craft, connects Merton to the larger world of modern ascetics.
  • Garne
Thomas Merton: Master of Attention is yet another gem from the pen of Robert G. Waldron.

Waldron paints a vivid picture of Merton and explores aspects of the man and his spirituality not commonly considered. Following a lifetime of study, prayer and meditation, Merton came to know the power of attending, an act so simple yet so very profound. In so doing, he learned to transcend the mundane by being fully and prayerfully present to all that is.

One would do well to attend to this book!
