About this title


Fully explores the inner life of perhaps the best-known writer on prayer of the twentieth century.


'Robert Waldron is a master teacher, often ploughing distinctive and synthesising furrows beyond expectation. He writes beautifully, accessibly, and practically, and displays great insight into how humans tick, not least in engagement with the tough and over-familiar topic of 'prayer'. Thomas Merton: Master of Attention is a compelling book from the heart not only of Waldron's scholarship, but of his own lay monastic interior life. From his own inbound adventures Waldron really knows of what he writes; a truly authentic author. This is a 'must read' for all those of a spiritual persuasion, Christian or otherwise.'
-- Richard Whitfield, formerly Warden of St George's House, Windsor Castle

'Robert Waldron skilfully explores the connections between the development of Merton's life of prayer and Simone Weil's emphasis on attention and grace in a way that opens the subject to all who seek to practice contemplation. In this inspiring book we are gently but wisely led through increasing insight to a deepening of our own prayer life. An essential read for the curious, the serious, and all Merton readers.' -- Fiona Gardner, Chair of The Thomas Merton Society of Great Britain and Ireland and author of Journeying Home and The Four Steps of Love

'Whether Buddhist, Sufi or Christian, whether captivated by art, nature, poetry or lectio divina, Waldron's readers will discover how to see more deeply and thus be in touch with the Cosmic Divine.' -- Monica Weis SSJ, Professor of English, Nazareth College of Rochester
