Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In addition to scholarly articles, this volume includes Merton's own Sufi poems, insightful book reviews, transcriptions from his related lectures, and a selection of works from which he drew particular inspiration, including the work of al-Tirmidhi (d.932), which uses fascinating metaphors to elucidate the difference between the Breast, Heart, Inner Heart, and the Intellect.

By A Customer on June 29, 2000
Format: Paperback
This is a well written book about a deeply spiritual man. This book is about a monk spiritual journey. A journey that took him to many alien ideas and cultures.
In his quest and search for the Real, he refused to disregard other revealed religions and what they can offer in a complete sense of spirituality.
His search led him to contact Muslims as well as Muslims saints and other well known and respected writers about the subject of Islam and Sufism in particular.
This book reads like story which makes it easy to read. At the end, the reader will be able to find out the influence that Islam and Sufism had on this excellent mind. And how it helped him to become a better Christian.
I have enjoyed this book very much. I would recommend this book for all.

thomas merton was a beloved scholar and practitioner of christian mysticism. in his travels, he reached out to many, including those of the buddhist faith and those of the sufi (islamic mystics) traditions. this book contains a number of writings that describe merton's approach to sufism and study thereof. i like the gray and i believe that merton finds or defines it in this book. it is one of merton's finer pieces. it's written in a style that is accessible to most educated adults. as a great fan of merton, i have not yet found a book that i have not liked. it is outstanding. i give this book a solid "A" and i highly recommend it to all mystics, all christians, and all muslims.
