Where Prayer Flourishes

Thomas Merton is one of the most influential spiritual figures of the twentieth century. A Trappist monk, he was also a bestselling writer whose works are regarded as spiritual classics. This book had originally been published under the title, The Climate of Monastic Prayer, and is full of accessible and practical teaching for anyone who wants to explore prayer to its full dimensions. Noting the value of the desert to contemplative prayer, Merton shows how to find the desert in the midst of the busy world. In her foreword, Sarah Coakley writes: "The closing paragraphs of this book are amongst the most prophetic ever penned by Merton. They represent the last clarion call to pure charity and authentic emptiness of the contemplative disposition, and to a fearless willingness to endure all the sacrificial ambiguity of that calling for the sake of the Kingdom of God." Where Prayer Flourishes will open a treasury of teaching about prayer to a wider audience.
