Review:

'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.
