Wisdom of the Desert, by Thomas Merton

The fourth-century Christian monks who are known as the Desert Fathers, those who sought solitude and contemplation in the deserts of the Near East as hermits, both bridge the gap between Christian thinking and Vedanta and also deepen the well of spirituality for those looking to deepen their Christian faith without looking outside their own faith tradition.

Prolific author and Catholic monk, Thomas Merton (1915-1968), translates some of his favorite parables from the Desert Fathers and the result is an eminently readable little book that provides bite-sized doses of wisdom in what approaches the Zen mondo tradition.
