Product Description

Ninety-nine years ago a girl nicknamed 'The Little Bud' was born in what is now Moldavia. In celebration of her centenary, "TIME" will release a handsome, unique volume celebrating Mother Teresa. "TIME MOTHER TERESA", written by prize winning "TIME" magazine religion correspondent David Van Biema, features the most striking photographs of Teresa in existence and original journalism, including new interviews with people who knew her and with those whose lives she changed forever, an essay by the priest in charge of her road to sainthood, and the most compelling voice - her own - as it emerges from dozens of intimately personal notes and letters she wrote throughout her life. The book will trace Teresa's astonishing progress from girlhood to her lonely one-woman mission to the poor, sick, and dying in the slums of Calcutta, India: it will also follow her own transformation from a nun whose mystical visions of a radically new calling were originally doubted, to a globally beloved model for people of all creeds and classes. Hardcover.

Publisher's Description

Introduction by Rick Warren

"A handwritten note from Mother Teresa hangs on my office wall. It says, 'Be holy because the God who created you is holy and he loves you.' Mother Teresa didn't just believe those words; she incarnated them . . .

By the time she wrote the note I've framed on my wall, leaders from around the world would listen to Mother Teresa. Why? I call it the Mother Teresa principle: The more you care about the powerless, the more power you have. The more you serve those with no influence, the more influence God gives you. The more you humble yourself, the more you're honored by others. This is the great lesson I hope you'll learn from this book.

Jesus said it this way, in Mark 8:35 : "If you insist on saving your life, you will lose it. Only those who throw away their lives for my sake and for the sake of the Good News will ever know what it means to really live."

Don't just read this book. Let it change the direction of your life. Let it cause you to investigate the One who so transformed Mother Teresa that she was able to walk away from everything we spend our lives trying to attain. Discover her motivation, her method, but most of all, her Master.

On this 100th anniversary of her birth, I leave you with my favorite Mother Teresa quote: 'God doesn't ask us to do great things. He asks us to do small things with great love.' Find a place to do that today.
