This book is an attempt to bring the vitality and energy of Anthony de Mello to as wide an audience as possible. Its themes include: Who was Tony de Mello? Why did his work create a stir among Christians? What is meditation? Callanan examines different types of meditation and fantasy prayer; styles of reflection that de Mello used with his audiences; getting life into focus; pain and failure in our lives. Like the work of de Mello himself, John Callanan's book is an attempt to give those who search, those who think and those who suffer some food for thought.
