I wasn't sure where to put this thread--please move if it fits better elsewhere. And forgive my unskilled questions! I've been reading a little by Thomas Merton and I am finding his thoughts about zen and Christianity very interesting. Can anyone recommend books by him or others on this topic, and also on meditation in Christianity? I know there is another thread about meditation, but I am so lacking in understanding about it that I really need something for beginners. I most appreciate names of authors and especially book titles as this is the thing I have easiest access to for now. Thank you!
