Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was born in France and came to live in the United States at the age of 24. He received several awards recognizing his contribution to religious study and contemplation, including the Pax Medal in 1963, and remained a devoted spiritualist and a tireless advocate for social justice until his death in 1968. The Sign of Jonas was originally published in 1953. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Merton's image of the human person is staggering. Interconnected to everything and everyone and bound together in God. This book captures the beauty, clarity and peace offered in Merton's vision. I recommend it to all Christians as well as Spiritual people interested in the kind of notion of personhood found in Christian Spirituality.

Very informative and helpful for one's spiritual progress. It is just like a retreat in that Merton uses actions, thoughts and events one is likely to encounter along one's spiritual path. I found it very encouraging, enlightening. I found answers to questions I had but lacked the time to ask a priest. The literary style is a joy to read.

Format: Hardcover
Merton is clearly aware of God incarnate, of God indwelling. This book is very readable and a resource for spiritual nourishment for anyone. The term mystic can present a perception of the abstract, but Merton is so very much rooted in his own reality and the reality of God's presence. This book is particularly valuable for anyone who suddenly finds themselves alone for any reason (e.g. separated, bereaved, children left nest....), as it provides reasurrance of ones own God-given value by nature of His indwelling and of the fact that we are part of His Body regardless of seeming isolation.
