When Thomas Merton's spiritual autobiography was first published in 1948, it was an unlikely candidate for a best-selling book. But less than one hundred years later, this account of his conversion to Catholicism has sold millions of copies and has been hailed as a modern-day version of Augustine's Confessions.
The Seven Storey Mountain is fundamentally about the triumph of God's grace in one man's life, a story of an imperfect individual whose search for meaning led him to a Trappist monastery. Honest and incisive, it is a personal testament to the life-changing reality of encountering the divine.
