Anthony De Mello

The Spiritual Wisdom of Anthony de Mello

Anthony de Mello was a Jesuit priest from India. He fuses spiritual ideas from many religions in a way that makes them accessible to readers. This book is in the form of a lecture at a retreat and it deals with the notion that we walk through life in a kind of sleep that prevents us from achieving a real connection to God and to ourselves.
