This is exactly what it says, short - in the main, paragraphs from Thomas Merton's writings, some of which will catch the attention and promote consideration in the sense that Bernard of Clairvaux used the word. They are written from experience and reflection, and a wide variety of experiences in different tradition. The kind of book, it is so rich in wisdom pertinent to the present day, without any preaching: Merton appeals to common sense, intelligence, and free of any agenda. He speaks as he finds, which these days is quite refreshing.
