A book I need to read many times to really get into what the author is saying. Requires an open mind, and being prepared to be challenged. If one takes this book seriously, then what it says will require a change in the reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the Edge, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A book that encourages people to go deeper into spiritual life. Suitable for individuals and groups. A book that requires a lot of time for reflection, thought, prayer and being prepared to step out of the known into the unknown. A very skilful use of the authors own travel experiences in the Holy Land.

An excellent publication, encouraging pilgrimage without necessarily setting foot outside our own homes. Opens our eyes to what is already there, on our own doorsteps. A practical guide book which would appeal to people who are housebound, as well as anyone who wants to see more in what they think they already know.

This review is from: Approaching Easter (Hardcover)
It is a gentle book, encouraging reflection in this most important season of the year. Well presented, using different ways of looking at the same theme, interspersed with pictures. A good balance of scripture, art, and personal reflection which would appeal to most people looking for something extra at this time if year.

This review is from: Awareness (Paperback)
An amazing book. One of the most important books i have ever read - and acted on. It is so full of wisdom and common sense, full of suggestions for leading a less stressed life.
Anthony de Mello tackles, head on, all the everyday problems that human beings come up against, such as suffering and loss, change and happiness.

A lovely book - opening up another way of looking, being aware of what is there, all around us and using that for prayer. It can be used individually or with a small group.
I have also seen it as a way of looking at old photographs in a new way.

What a splendid little book - this is the first time I have come across it, and have found it to be an absolute mine of information. It not only brings the Psalms alive, but it brings them up-to-date with everyday experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystical Truth, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't got very far with this book yet, because I am finding it absolutely riveting, and keep going back to the beginning. There is so much depth in every word and page and takes us back to the roots of Christianity. It involves all of oneself - body, soul and spirit. It is a book that can change my life.
