When the Trees Say Nothing: Writings on Nature by Thomas Merton. Edited by Kathleen Deignan, Drawings by John Giuliani, and a foreword by Thomas Berry. Sorin Books
In a world where the commodification of creation is ubiquitous, we are in need of these words from one of the greatest sages of the 20th century. The excerpts, chosen by Kathleen Deignan, and the drawings by John Guiliani offer the reader a chance to engage with a love and reverence for the natural word through the texts - hopefully, compelling the reader to leave the book, eventually, and enter the actual created world. This book is true to the Merton spirit of classic wisdom and an ageless sense of wonder.
