Overview

Kenneth Lux first heard of Meher Baba in 1967. He was finishing his doctorate in psychology at Indiana University and was an assistant professor at the South Bend campus. A friend wrote to him saying, "Have you ever heard of Meher Baba, he's too much for me."

Lux had no idea what his friend was referring to, and only the slightest curiosity about what was meant, but some months later, wandering through the stacks at the Notre Dame library, his eyes caught a book title-"God Speaks" by Meher Baba. This certainly had to be one of the strangest titles for a book, he thought. God speaks? God? What was this-monumental ego? He opened the book and the frontispiece was a photograph of Meher Baba. He was smiling, fifty or so, with a mustache, looking like an Italian organ grinder or a pizza chef, and sitting on a tiger skin. The photograph seemed as odd to him as the title.

In a world growing increasingly desperate for hope, Lux presents Avatar Meher Baba as the divinely ordained answer to that desperation and the one that the world has been waiting for-whether consciously or unconsciously.

Editorial Reviews

Kendra C. Burroughs
"This is the story of an unusual spirit master . . . But it is much more than that-it is also the intimate story of how the author awakened to the search for truth in response to the charm of Meher Baba's personality, the power of his message of divine love, and the intellectual challenge posed by his teachings."
author of "Bhagavad Gita: Annotated & Explained"
Ann Conlon
Kenneth is probably the most articulate and elegant writer of anyone doing books about Meher Baba. I think his book is a very good introductory book to Meher Baba and he does bring the whole story into the twenty-first century."
Editor, Sheriar Press
Don E. Stevens
"Ken’s writing is exactly what I expected from him: intelligent, totally honest, carefully reflected, and going directly to central issues."
noted author of several books, including "Man's Search for Certainty"; "Listen! The New Humanity"; "The Inner Path in the New Life"; "Some Results"; and "Meher Baba: The Awakener of the Age"
