Contemplative Prayer

Full Product Description

Thomas Merton’s classic study of monastic prayer and contemplation brings a tradition of spirituality alive for the present day. But, as A M Allchin points out in his Introduction to this new edition, Contemplative Prayer also shows us the present day in a new perspective, because we see it in the light of a long and living tradition.

Merton stresses that in mediatation we should not look for a 'method' or 'system' but cultivate an 'attitude' or 'outlook': faith, openness, attention, reverence, expectation, trust, joy. God is found in the desert of surrender, in giving up any expectation of a particular message and 'waiting on the Word of God in silence.'

Contemplative Prayer by Thomas Merton was published by Darton Longman & Todd in May 2005 and is our 18960th best seller. The ISBN for Contemplative Prayer is 9780232526042.
