Born a humble girl in what is now Albania, Agnes Bojaxhiu lived a charitable life. She pledged herself to a religious order at the age of 18 and chose the name Sister Teresa, after the patron saint of missionaries. While teaching in India, where famine and violence had devastated the poor, Teresa shed her habit and walked the streets of Calcutta tending to the needs of the destitute. Her charity work soon expanded internationally, and her name remains synonymous with compassion and devotion to the poor.

Presents Mother Teresa's spiritual way, through an appealing collection of her own writings and a commentary by the editor. To all who knew her, personally or through the media, Mother Teresa of Calcutta embodied Jesus’ promise, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me” (Mt 25:40). The works of mercy were her daily bread. This woman, who her contemporaries recognized as a saint, understood the purpose of human life: to be Christ for others, to see Christ in others — particularly those who, as she said, “have no one to call their own.” It is a goal worthy of a lifetime. Can we follow her life? Created for Greater Things shows that we can. Her way is accessible and can transform our lives. She shows us how to live our lives with faith, love, understanding and responsibility. Like Mother Teresa we too can bring the presence of God in the world. Includes 25 b/w pictures

Mother Teresa (1910-1997) was a Roman Catholic nun, who devoted her life to serving the poor and destitute around the world. She spent many years in Calcutta where she founded the Missionaries of Charity, a religious congregation devoted to helping those in great need. In 1979, Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and became a symbol of charitable selfless work. She was beatified in 2003, the first step on the path to sainthood, within the Catholic Church. This book gives a brief account of her life.

In this frank and damning expos of the Teresa cult, Hitchens details the nature and limits of one woman's mission to help the world's poor. He probes the source of the heroic status bestowed upon an Albanian nun whose only declared wish was to serve God. He asks whether Mother Teresa's good works answered any higher purpose than the need of the world's privileged to see someone, somewhere, doing something for the Third World. He unmasks pseudo-miracles, questions Mother Teresa's fitness to adjudicate on matters of sex and reproduction, and reports on a version of saintly ubiquity which affords genial relations with dictators, corrupt tycoons and convicted frauds. Is Mother Teresa merely an essential salve to the conscience of the rich West, or an expert PR machine for the Catholic Church? In its caustic iconoclasm and unsparing wit, The Missionary Position showcases the devastating effect of Hitchens' writing at its polemical best.
