Thomas Merton's classic study of monastic prayer and contemplation brings a tradition of spirituality alive for the present day. But, as A M Allchin points out in his Introduction to this new edition, Contemplative Prayer also shows us the present day in a new perspective, because we see it in the light of a long and living tradition.

St Pauls is sad to announce that we will no longer be able to send orders to EU countries other than the Republic of Ireland. With Great Britain's exit from the EU customs union, getting orders to our EU customers has become increasingly difficult and is now something that we can no longer guarantee will happen with any certainty. We can continue sending goods to countries outside Europe though this is not a service our website can provide. If you are outside Europe and are interested in our products, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote on sending to your destination. After receiving a quotation from us, payment would be taken either over the phone or by bank transfer prior to shipping. Shipping rates to the Republic of Ireland remain unchanged - (£6.50 by Royal Mail airmail up to a value of £25.00 and £9.50 DPD courier above a value of £25.00). We would like to thank all our EU customers for their support over the years and hope we can one day return to serving you all again.
All prices as set out on the website are inclusive of UK VAT (where applicable). Please note that books are VAT zero rated in the UK. Customers outside of the UK will be responsible, where necessary, for the payment of local VAT, import duties and customs handling charges at point of import.
If you are ordering goods for delivery outside of the UK, your consignment may be subject to import duties/taxes, customs handling charges/fees and import VAT. ST PAULS has no control over these additional charges in relation to customs clearance in the country of destination, and, by placing your order, you are accepting responsibility for the payment of any additional duties, taxes or fees once the goods have reached their country of destination. ST PAULS recommends that—prior to placing an order— you check with your local customs officials or postal service for more information regarding all importation taxes and duties that may be applied to the goods you are about to import. As the customer, you will be the importer of record and responsible for any import VAT, duties and handling fees that may require payment before a carrier releases any goods destined to you.
