Publisher’s Description: 

First published in 2003 and now available in paperback to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of Thomas Mertons birth, When the Trees Say Nothing has sold more than 60,000 copies and continually inspires readers with its unique collection of Mertons luminous writings on nature, arranged for reflection and meditation.

Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk, author, poet, social commentator, and perhaps the most influential and widely published spiritual writer of the twentieth century. In When the Trees Say Nothing, editor Kathleen Deignan sheds new light on Merton by focusing on a neglected theme of his writing: the natural world as a manifestation of the divine.

Drawing from Mertons voluminous writing on nature, Deignan has thematically assembled a collection of lucid, poetic reflections. Chapters on the four elements, the seasons, the Earth and its creatures, and the sun, moon, and stars provide brief passages from his diverse works that reveal the presence of God in creation.
