Not so much biography as an account of Mother Teresa's impact on Muggeridge's life. Of course, the work that she did is recounted, but what comes through more than that is his understanding of faith and God's love. Though, I am not sure, at least at the time of writing, that his understanding of faith is complete. He is impressed and awed but not convinced that her way—through the RCC—is the way for him. ( )

This is a personal and intimate account of the life of Mother Teresa, written with humor and understanding.

Interesting, though reading about Mother Teresa makes you feel like a terrible person. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060660430, Paperback)

No woman alive today has inspired so many with her simplicity of faith and compassion so all-encompassing. As she daily embraces the "least of the least" in her arms, Mother Theresa challenges the whole world to greater acts of service and understanding in the name of love.

First published in 1971, this classic work introduced Mother Theresa to the Western World. As timely now as it was then, Something Beautiful for God interprets her life through the eyes of a modern-day skeptic who became literally transformed within her presence, describing her as "a light which could never be extinguised."

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."… (more)
