The Seven Storey Mountain
by Thomas Merton
Publisher:SPCK (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge)
Published:01 December 2014
'The Seven Story Mountain' is a modern classic and has been one of the SPCK Classics series for a while now, but this Centenary Edition is a complete and unedited version of Merton's biography with a few pages of black and white pictures included.
Seven Storey Mountain, for those that have not yet had the pleasure of meeting and reading the book, is a biography of Merton's search for God and his finding Him in the great silence of a Trappist monastery.It's the story of a person increasingly disillusioned with their contemporary society, and their search for more, finding that more in the journey away from Atheism and into Catholicism and finally to a life as a trappist Cistercian monk in Kentucky.
It's a classic for a reason and has much in it that speaks to many a spiritual traveller still today.
