Contemplation is the single strand that binds together the life and work of Thomas Merton. Thomas Merton's Paradise Journey: Writings on Contemplation traces the development of Merton's thought on the subject from his early What Is Contemplation? to his later works and journals. In addition, Merton scholar William H. Shannon provides incisive commentary and substantial excerpts from The Inner Experience (which Merton stipulated should never be published as a book), normally available only to scholars with access to the original manuscript.
