Picks of the Week-May 9

Spring has sprung! We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to listen to all of the new audiobooks releasing this month!

We understand that at times it could be a challenge narrowing down your next listen, so we had our acquirers narrow down a few of their top picks for you.

The Seeker and the Monk: Everyday Conversations with Thomas Merton

What if we truly belong to each other? What if we are all walking around shining like the sun? Mystic, monk, and activist Thomas Merton asked those questions in the twentieth century. Writer Sophfronia Scott is asking them today. In The Seeker and the Monk, Scott mines the extensive private journals of one of the most influential contemplative thinkers of the past for guidance on how to live in these fraught times.

Note: Winner of the 2021 Thomas Merton Award, The Seeker and the Monk, by Sophfronia Scott is a spiritual conversation between the unlikeliest pair. Scott, a non-Catholic Black woman, delves into the writings of the revered Trappist monk Thomas Merton and juxtaposes his contemplations against the culture milieu of the 21st century. Through Merton’s lens, Scott reflects on faith, ambition, nature, race, and prayer and invites the listener into a process of personal growth, exploration and understanding. For those who believe, like Merton said “we truly belong together” and seek a way to explain it, this is the audiobook for you.  – Nicholas Pouliot
