Baker & Taylor
Compiles the trappist monk's meditations and reflections on Christ, self, love, and life

Blackwell North Amer
This edition is a much-enlarged and revised version of Seeds of Contemplation, one of the late Father Thomas Merton's most widely read and best-loved works. In its original form, the book was reprinted ten times in this country alone, and has been translated into more than a dozen languages, including Chinese and Japanese. Christians and non-Christians alike have joined in praising it as a notable successor in the meditative tradition of St. John of the Cross, The Cloud of Unknowing, and the medieval mystics, while others have compared Merton's reflections with those of Thoreau.
New Seeds of Contemplation seeks to awaken the dormant inner depths of the spirit so long neglected by Western man, to nurture a deeply contemplative and mystical dimension in our spiritual lives.

Although Merton's famous Seven Storey Mountain didn't do anything for me, I really loved this book. I picked it up because I heard it was being studied in some prisons which intrigued me. Now I wish I owned a copy so that I could take more time, savor each chapter and try to learn more about contemplation. If you are interested in the possibility of connecting more intimately with God, this is an excellent book.
