A recapitulation of his earlier work Seeds of Contemplation, this collection of sixteen essays plumbs aspects of human spirituality. Merton addresses those in search of enduring values, fulfillment, and salvation in prose that is, as always, inspiring and compassionate. “A stimulating series of spiritual reflections which will prove helpful for all struggling to...live the richest, fullest and noblest life” (Chicago Tribune).

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was born in France and came to live in the United States at the age of 24. He received several awards recognizing his contribution to religious study and contemplation, including the Pax Medal in 1963, and remained a devoted spiritualist and a tireless advocate for social justice until his death in 1968. The Sign of Jonas was originally published in 1953.From AudioFile:
Jonathan Montaldo interprets Merton's work on enduring values, fulfillment, salvation, and the relationship between faith and human spirituality. Montaldo conveys complex ideas with simplicity and an impeccable delivery. The first essay on spiritual love is considered a classic. Montaldo gives a polished performance when he reflects on man's relationship with God, man's relationship with others, and why love can only be kept when it is given away. Other themes touch on hope, conscience, freedom, and prayer. Montaldo's delivery of Merton's material on Christian humanism and reciprocal love gives the listener food for thought. This well-done series of spiritual meditations provides a wellspring of enlightenment and encouragement. Fans of Thomas Merton will enjoy the flowing prose.
