Publisher's Summary

Mother Teresa: The Saint of Calcutta

Mother Teresa is one of the most celebrated figures from the last millennium. For more than 50 years, she did things that announced her to the entire world. A polite and humble figure, loved and criticized in equal measures, this audiobook celebrates the life of a little nun from Albania who taught the whole world a lesson.

This is what you will learn inside:

The audiobook is divided into four chapters, each dealing with a tenet that concerns the life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. In 2015, the Catholic Church canonized her, thus elevating her to the highest point all Catholics want, that of a saint. This is despite the considerable criticism levelled against her.

The audiobook also looks at the challenges Teresa faced when she started a charity congregation with just five rupees and a sari. There are the lessons she taught the world through her anecdotes and sayings as well.

The audiobook takes a deep look at the criticism levelled against her, offers a profile of her critics and the response to the criticism. While the media will look at the sensational headlines about this topic, the book's approach is deep and puts the whole issue into perspective.

    "Best guide"

    I'velearned most of the biographies on her and consider this one the best by far. It is thorough, sensitive, with many details not found in others. More than well worth to listen

    "MOTHER OF NATION"

    This was an interesting book if all you wanted to know was what Mother Teresa did for building helpful Christian communities around the world. It also gave the reader information about the important people she met and how involved she was involved in achieving some changes in helping the "poorest of the poor."GREAT NOVEL

    "very good"

    This is an excellent book that talks about many different aspects of a spiritual life. Mother Teresa writes in a very simple and understandable way to walk you through her very simple path to God. She emphasizes actions as a way of showing love and getting closer to God, but not actions within themselves. It's a connection with God which made her able to live in such conditions and work with those whom everyone else rejecting and whom she knew would probably die. And when she obeyed God and did what he asked, she became closer to him.suggested guide

    "Mother teresa inspirational"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mother Teresa: A Life of Love - Lessons of Wisdom and Humanity?

    Towards the end of the book, it talks about the criticism she's had throughout her life from different groups of religious people. Personally it surprises me that many people are so 'offended' by her when all she does is promote peace. Her religion being different from yours shouldn't deter you from listening to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a big fan of mother teresa and her teaching of peace, unity, and love for all people and religions around the world. This audiobook is more of a guide but goes into all the important aspects of why she's regarded as a saint.

    "The great women"

    It is an excellent book.The joy that comes with doing even the smallest things with a loving heart is something we forget. Her wisdom and humility and things to stive for in our own lives. This is a book that will sit next to my chair to be read a bit each day to help keep me focused on priorities in my life.suggested book

    "very inspiring"

    I respect and admire Mother Teresa in a higher level, but I knew very little about her. Good thing I started buying audio books since I'm not that of a reader and this inspired me a lot to act in love in whatever I do.
