Seeds -- by Thomas Merton, selected and edited by Robert Inchausti


 
Thomas Merton is often considered the most prominent Christian contemplative of the twentieth century, but he was also a political activist, social visionary, and literary figure whose writings combine the candor of Thoreau and the moral vision of Gandhi. Here is a remarkably accessible introduction to his work: a collection of short, vivid excerpts arranged in four parts so as to parallel the journey of a seeking soul in the modern world.

Merton's startling critique of a society driven by technology and rampant acquisition, the politics of "good versus evil," and the self-deluding complacency of the spiritual "lifestyle" demonstrate beyond doubt that his writings are as urgently relevant today as they were in his lifetime.

Robert Inchausti is the author of Thomas Merton's Spiritual Prophecy, The Ignorant Perfection of Ordinary People, and The Spitwad Sutras: Classroom Teaching as Sublime Vocation. He is a Professor of English at California Polytechnic State University.
