Trusting the story

Anthony de Mello's books generally fall into three groups - guided meditations; cross-cultural, interreligious, traditional teaching tales; and sayings of the Master in context. This book falls into the second category - traditional teaching tales. Fr. de Mello has categorized the stories into seven chapters: spirituality, education, authority, human nature, relationships, service and enlightment. Most of the stories are told without any "editorial" comments i.e. the author trusts the power of story. The selection is excellent coming from a wide variety of traditions and ages.An example: "When the preacher returned to the Good News theme the Master interrupted him: 'What sort of Good News is it,' he asked, 'that makes it so easy to go to hell and so hard to get to heaven?'" Please recall that it is a Catholic priest who wrote this book.You can read the book straight through and get a lot of laughs or you can read it as intended, pondering the stories and risking having your life changed. The latter is the intend of the author.

Not one second of nonsense!

With this outstanding book on wisdom and spirituality, de Mello demonstrates once again his incredible writing talent. Read it and let yourself "enlighten"...
