Anthony De Mello
His Life and His Spirituality
By (author) Anand Nayak
Anthony De Mello by Anand Nayak
Book DescriptionIn this book, Anand Nayak begins with a short biography of Father Anthony de Mello (1931-1987) and then examines his spiritual teachings. The publication of the Notification concerning the writings of Father Anthony de Mello, S.J., issued by Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on June 24 1998, was a shock to Christians, as well as to non-Christians, all over the world. People, who had known Tony de Mello personally or through his writings, were at loss as to why a solemn notification was needed to warn Catholics against a person in whom they had recognised a healthy sanctity rather than a danger to the faith. Having pointed out the context of de Mello's work, and the various particular approaches which he adapted, the author then turns to a detailed examination of the Notification and its approach to Fr de Mello's work. He points out clearly the weaknesses and misunderstandings that underlie the document. A final chapter looks at various responses across the world and tries once again to put Anthony de Mello in context as a teacher, a prophet and a healer.
