Mother Teresa: An Authorized Biography (Revised Edition)
copies bought in the last week
Mother Teresa of Calcutta was the founder of the Missionaries of Charity and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, but her story is so much more remarkable. From her childhood in the Balkans to her work in India, from attending the victims of war-torn Beirut to pleading with George Bush and Saddam Hussein to choose peace over war, Mother Teresa was driven by a mighty faith.
Newly revised and updated, this edition includes a personal insight into the beatification and continuing process of canonization for Mother Teresa, the ongoing work of the Missionaries of Charity, and her “dark night of the soul.”
Mother Teresa consistently claimed that she was simply responding to Christ's boundless love for her and for all of humanity, bringing to the world a great lesson in joyful and selfless love. This book is a glimpse into her extraordinary faith, work, and life.
