Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: An exploration of the life, work, and legacy of this remarkable humanitarian who devoted her life to caring for the poorest of the poor.-- Mother Teresa's name and work is internationally recognized. The community she founded-The Missionaries of Charity-has grown to more than 500 missionaries operating in over 100 countries.-- Although her good deeds were indisputable, Mother Teresa's life was not without controversy. Her strong views against abortion and divorce and accusations of taking donations without questioning the sources have brought her criticism.-- It is expected that Mother Teresa will be proclaimed a saint in five years from her death.Critical Lives: Mother Teresa will cover: worldly wealth-the privileged childhood of Agnes Goinxha Bejaxhiu, the influence of her father's mysterious death, and the impact of her mother's guidance; the vision-her stay in the mountains of Darjeeling and her calling from God to serve the "poorest of the poor"; Calcutta-the formation of the Mission of Charity, the Home for the Dying, and her work with society's unwanted; persecution-attacks by Marxist politicians.; fame-Mother Teresa's work is the subject of a BBC documentary, she becomes famous and wins the Nobel Peace Prize; confrontation and criticism-her fame results in ridicule from leftist factions in the Catholic church and from feminist groups, and allegations of her unethical business practices surface; and canonization-her failing years, beatific vision, death, and postmortem miracles.
