A Prophet for Our Time

Anthony de Mello S.J. was a prophet for our time. His stories and insights reach into the hearts of his listerners. He paints a compelling picture of faith and life that is tangible and achieveable. Reading his work is a blessing.

This book is actually a series of lectures from a religious retreat given by Anthony De Mello, who is apparently a Jesuit priest. But in no way does it represent the Ignatian retreat model (at least that I could tell) and it also didn't really seem to follow traditional Catholic morality or thinking. Though I'm no expert, I do believe that charity does exist in the world, and that it is possible for someone to perform an altruistic act without necessarily doing it because he or she is feeling good about performing a good action, for example. This book made me see how far gone so many of the Jesuit institutions are--like Georgetown and Notre Dame, Fordham, and all th other places where extremely bad decisions have been made in regard to supporting things the Catholic Church is clearly against.
