Seven Story Mountain

by Kemmer on May 10, 2012

A great journey story of navigating poetry and religion. This edition with larger print is easier to follow than older editions. A spiritual moveable feast set in Newy York City at Columbia as Merton through the Eucharist draws closer to his calling.

So far, I would even go so far as to rate it right up there with Augustine's " Confessions." To lead us in this modern world, we need more hearfelt and simple accounts such as Thomas Merton's.

Gets a bit heavy in Catholic Dogma and praise to the "godlike" Lady or Virgin Mary, but that's to be expected. I really like his psychology into why someone would change their life as he did,
