Anthony deMello s brother lovingly recounts the life and message of a modern mystic and spiritual master.
Anthony deMello, an Indian Jesuit who died in 1987, was one of the great spiritual teachers of our time. Through his books and popular retreats he achieved a world-wide following that has only continued to grow in recent years. Integrating western and eastern sources, he developed a new approach to Christian spirituality that brought enlightenment to people of all backgrounds. But who was Anthony deMello? What were the sources that nourished his own spiritual development? Twenty-five years after his sudden death comes this intimate biography by his younger brother Bill. Beginning with an account of their last meeting, the night before Tony died, Bill goes back to his early life in India, his formation as a Jesuit, the emergence of his spiritual teachings and his role as a world-traveler and teacher. Acknowledging that his own understanding and appreciation of Tony s message began only after his brother s death, Bill manages to convey that message an invitation to awaken to the experience of God in daily life and the impact it has had on countless people. He reflects as well on the controversies that have dogged Tony s legacy, including the surprising 1998 notification from the Vatican warning of dangers in deMello s work. For all who have treasured Anthony s deMello s works, this long-awaited biography will be a great gift.
