Overview

A unique and loving account of the life and message of a great spiritual teacher by his younger brother. Anthony deMello, an Indian Jesuit who died in 1987, was among the most popular and influential spiritual teachers of our time. Through his books and retreats he achieved a worldwide following that has only continued to grow in recent years. But who was Anthony deMello? What were the sources that nourished his spiritual development? In this timely biography Bill deMello, Tony's younger brother, provides an honest and intimate portrait. Beginning with his early life in India and his formation as a Jesuit, we follow deMello s gradual refinement of a new approach to Christian spirituality that integrated eastern and western sources. While acknowledging that his own appreciation of Tony s message began only after his 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. For all those who have treasured Anthony's deMello s writings and wisdom, this long-awaited biography will be a great gift.
