A Revolution of Love
The Meaning of Mother TeresaBook - 2005
The glitter of Mother Teresa's celebrity obscures the full splendor of her saintliness, argues David Scott in this inspiring yet unsentimental look at the life of the first truly global saint. In countless photos and unforgettable television images. Mother Teresa appeared unflappable in her single-minded advocacy for the poor, but she was actually a complex figure. She found her life's work only after years of false starts and by overcoming great practical difficulties. Her love for the poor was accompanied by a stern critique of the rich and powerful. And she lived much of her life in an anguished dark night of the soul. David Scott's discovery of the full meaning of Mother Teresa shows her to be a saint exquisitely matched for our times--a global figure who wanted to knit the world together in a "revolution of love."
