About Your Presenter

Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk and bestselling author of such beloved works as The Seven Storey Mountain and New Seeds of Contemplation. One of the 20th century’s great mystics, Merton was also a masterful teacher who delivered powerful conferences to the novice monks at the Abbey of Gethsemani. In these conferences, Merton’s thinking moved from cloistered monastic life to issues of social justice and interreligious understanding. A spiritual sage and guide for countless men and women, Merton struggled with complex questions about God’s existence and the role of organized religion.

Those who knew him also experienced his gifts as a homilist and teacher. These special, remastered recordings are part of his spoken word legacy. They are actual recordings of Thomas Merton. By agreement with The Thomas Merton Legacy Trust, Now You Know Media has the sole right to record, master, re-master, duplicate, market, and disseminate copies of "The Merton Recordings," which are a selection of the archives housed in the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky.

Dr. James "Jim" Finley, Ph.D. lived for six years as a cloistered Trappist monk at the Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky, where he studied with the world-renowned monk and bestselling author, Thomas Merton.

Dr. Finley went on to earn his Ph.D. in psychology. A highly regarded retreat leader, Merton scholar, and master of the Contemplative Way, he is also the celebrated author of Merton's Palace of Nowhere, The Contemplative Heart, and Christian Meditation: Experiencing the Presence of God.

Now married and living in Santa Monica, California, Dr. Finley practices clinical psychology and leads retreats and workshops throughout the United States and Canada. His retreat topics attract men and women from all religious traditions who seek to live contemplatively in the midst of today's busy world.
