The Seven Storey Mountain has been added to your Cart. I first read Thomas Merton’s books as a young Christian over 60 years ago when I was wondering which denominations were closely aligned with Christ’s own teachings. I did not feel drawn to the Catholic tradition as I encountered it in his writings, but recognized its authentic spirituality. It is ironic that near the end of my mortal span I now find a home within the Catholic tradition I rejected then.

I was captivated by the story of Thomas Merton's life and his conversion to Catholicism. I'd heard of this book for quite some time, but never really knew what it was about other than someone's spiritual journey, and that's what this is. How a man with an unusual childhood (his mother died when he was young, and his artist father took him to France to live for quite some time, then he attended university in England, eventually returning to the US, where he studied at Columbia, aspiring to be a writer) suddenly in his early 20s develops a hunger for the spiritual life. And though he chose to become a Catholic monk, a path filled with obstacles, if he'd been born in another country, I could just as easily imagine him having become a Buddhist monk. This for me was at the heart of his story. He had a spiritual conversion, not just a Catholic or Christian one. His description of and longing for communion with God brought me closer to the same. His words transported and inspired me. He was an unusual man, destined to write about his experience when in fact, at least initially, all he wanted was the silence required by his order of Trappists. He went on to write many other books, some of which I have yet to read. Definitely recommend it, both for those who enjoy a good autobiography and those interested in the spiritual life.

I first learned of Thomas Merton from two of my favorite authors, Brennan Manning and Henri Nouwen. After reading so many works by these established authors, I began to be interested in learning more about those that influenced them. Merton is one of those writers who speaks to the mystical tradition and feels passionately about the Love of God. I can see why many of the "Love" authors refer to him in their writings. The seven story mountain is less a teaching book and more a record of events leading up to his joining a Trappist monastery. This book has value for someone who likes to read different stories of people coming to know the Lord Jesus. Someone who is just beginning their spiritual journey to know Christ, may see something of themselves in the life of Merton. His questions are some of the same questions many ask when beginning their spiritual quest. The book is painfully slow at times but can be read and then set aside for a while. I am not a fan of all the catholic theology but could look beyond the differing views to the heart of what is being said. If you are looking for some of the primary teachings of Merton, I wouldn't read this book. This book is more for those who wish to learn about his personal development. It is also more of a history book for the early half of the 20th century. There are interesting events taking place throughout the story that shed some light on the last 100 years. If you are looking for an introductory book to his teachings, I would suggest reading "No Man Is An Island."

I first read Thomas Merton’s books as a young Christian over 60 years ago when I was wondering which denominations were closely aligned with Christ’s own teachings. I did not feel drawn to the Catholic tradition as I encountered it in his writings, but recognized its authentic spirituality. It is ironic that near the end of my mortal span I now find a home within the Catholic tradition I rejected then. Re-reading this classic has been very stimulating, Why only three stars? I think it is a little too self-indulgent. And there are questions raised in the preface that I find disturbing. But it is a landmark classic and well worth reading!

I have read this book several times before, under the title of "Elected Silence" which was the first title given when it was published in Britain. I had an old copy and it made a deep impression on me. I have just gained a new copy of the book under the title of "The Seven Storey Mountain" I belong to the Thoms Merton International Chapter in Christchurch, New Zealand, and we have a number of books to lend out at our meetings. People, I meet, want to read this autobiography which still makes an impact. today, just as it did when it was first published.

I recommend it to any one who is searching for belief in God because, for Merton, it was an intellectual conversion, and, for many, that makes more sense in today's complex society.
