My Dinner With Anton
When a 21st century evangelical and an 18th century Russian monk get together for an Italian meal, you know the conversation is going to take you to some unexpected places!
If ever there were a book that is both charming and wrenchingly serious -all at the same time – it is this record of a dinner with Anton. Orthodoxy and its ways of praying and being have never had a more cordial, attractive and sympathetic introduction in the West than that which Paul Wallis provides here. I can almost guarantee that you will savor as well as treasure this one!) Phyllis Tickle – Publishers Weekly (USA)

Where Paul Wallis provides the meat I am happy to provide the gravy.
Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh
Paul Wallis is able somehow to roll back the years. This sense of timelessness is key to My Dinner with Anton. One of the greatest rewards…is…to listen as Paul Wallis poses all those difficult questions we may have longed to ask for ourselves…We come away enriched and encouraged to expect great things of God in our own lives.

Paul has the profound ability to make subjects such as listening to God, prayer, solitude and faith accessible and understandable. This book could open up new horizons for you in your relationship with God.

Written with an admirable light touch, My Dinner with Anton has successfully lifted a worthy subject out of the theological depths.

I was very inspired by how the author gradually takes the reader through an amazing journey of discovery of what God can do in our lives!! A must to read! You’ll come away very satisfied and full! Bon Appetit!
Refreshingly accessible without being dumbed down, “My Dinner” serves up a delightful treat of tasty theological insight, wrapped in a wonderful shell of realism. When we underestimate the nature of our Creator God, a God of wisdom, power, mystery and miracle, we can turn to Wallis and Anton to remind us of the true essence of an amazing loving God who engages with the created order actively throughout the ages.
