Who would I recommend this to? Everyone.
Worth reading through several times - a little at a time. Too much at once and they loose their impact.
The above is his stated goal in the introduction and it is accomplished masterfully.
Similar to One Minute Wisdom but the stories do not overlap.
I followed deMello's instruction and confined my reading to one parable or tale each morning. Throughout the day it would return to me, either to amuse, enlighten or both.. Interestingly, I was already familiar with many of the tales but viewed them differently in the past. deMello has generated a refreshing, sometimes novel, interpretation that always inspires.
Song of the Bird is a book that will be read again and again. The compilation is proof that although Truth has many ways of revealing itsself, it remains consistent and eventually reveals itself to all who seek it.
Top international reviews
Anthony De Mello is a Catholic priest who has really listened to what other religions have to say, and allowed their truths and insights to enlighten his own religion too. He faithfully follows St. Ignatius' instruction to "find God in all things", including the lives and teachings of non-Catholics and non-Christians.
I am SO glad I bought another copy. It is a unique piece of writing and wisdom.
Wholly readable and VERY thought provoking.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER !!!
Not the best book by Anthony De Mello but still a mine of information.
