This is the work that introduced Mother Teresa of Calcutta to the Western world. Malcolm Muggeridge paints a profound and moving portrait of a lady whose love for Christ and the needy has deeply impacted many a life—including the author’s. “For me,” says Muggeridge, “Mother Teresa of Calcutta embodies Christian love in action. Her face shines with the love of Christ on which her whole life is centered, and her words carry that message to a world which never needed it so much.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “Muggeridge’s genius lies in his ability to resist both pat formulas and watered-down intellectualizations. He adeptly balances a clear exposition of faith against a respect for the profundity of the Christian mystery. Instead of trying to defend or explain Christianity, Muggeridge tries to help us to see the world through the unique vision of an exemplary Christian. By so doing, we can grasp Christianity’s truth via the power of our imaginations.”

    " I read this book to learn more about Mother Terresa and for that purpose, this book does not serve as the best tool. However, if you want to learn about the work she did--perhaps at a personal level--this book could be interesting. It's a quick and easy read with many inspirational stories. "

    " beautiful, humbling, and eye opening "

    " A cool look at an amazing person brimming with Christ's love for the unlovable. Really highlights the materialism of our culture and the limits of our faith. Very inspirational. "

    " "Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted; to understand rather than to be understood; to love rather than to be loved; for it is by forgetting self that one finds; it is by dying that one awakens to eternal life. Amen." "

    " I wanted more of Mother Teresa.. This was more about the author's conversation, which is important as well; however, I bought the book to learn more about her, not the author. Well written and demonstrates her impact on others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/17/2014

    " Some beautiful parts but the beginning was hard to get into. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JJ | 1/16/2014

    " A short insight into the life of Mother Theresa. Written too long ago to be of much current interest. Much of it was a trascript of an interview. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spam philebar | 12/26/2013

    " what an amazing life. this book shows the amazing goodness and kindness that can come out of a simple human being when God is the one leading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/28/2013

    " Not as informative about Mother Theresa as I'd hoped, with more introspection about Malcolm Muggeridge than I expected. Still an uplifting read though, with the main focus being on Mother Theresa's beautiful core beliefs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick\ | 9/9/2013

    " On the cynical editor of Punch a light "has shined." Transformation of the one human spirit in a quasi-biography of Mother Teresa. A terrific read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick Perdiew | 9/8/2013

    " An uncritical look through the eyes of one person. If you are looking for a biography, go elsewhere. The writing is a little disorganized and lacks somewhat in coherence. "

    " I still use this book to find quotes and inspiration. Muggeridge saw the light in Mother Teresa, and it inspired him to convert. I love stories of old salts who are changed by the sight of love in action...and this book is that. "

About the Author
Author Malcolm Muggeridge

Malcolm Muggeridge (1903–1990) was a world-renowned philosopher, humorist, newspaper editor, and university rector. He is best known to American audiences for his book Something Beautiful for God and for his frequent appearances on Firing Line. A tart-tongued agnostic, he was fascinated by the idea of faith and eventually converted to Catholicism. His enduring appeal is often compared to that of his compatriots G. K. Chesterton and C. S. Lewis.
