Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

For years Mother Teresa has appeared at the top of every list of the world's most influential women, in company with Diana, Princess of Wales, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Different in almost every respect from those famous women, she did share one important quality: she was a star. In Mother Teresa, biographer Kathryn Spink goes beyond her subject's public persona to examine the life of a modern-day saint. In the course of tracing Mother Teresa's life--from her birth in Albania to her years in Ireland and then India with the Loreto Sisters to the founding of her own order, the Missionaries of Charity--Spink explores the ramifications of her subject's life and work on the lives of those she labored for and with.

Mother Teresa's frail appearance belied the steely will and public-relations savvy she brought to the task of loosening potential donor's purse strings and attracting attention to her cause. Was Mother Teresa a kind of spiritual colonialist, as critics have charged, more interested in helping the poor die in a state of grace than in changing the conditions in which they lived? Spink discusses this and other thorny questions with grace and honesty, at the same time emphasizing her subject's admirable achievements.

Pressestimmen

“Simply the best biography of Mother Teresa around. Thoroughly researched, sensitively written and unfailingly inspiring, Kathryn Spink’s book should be, after Mother Teresa’s own writings, your first resource for understanding one of the greatest saints in Christian history.” (James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything and My Life with the Saints)

2.0 von 5 Sternen Badly Written Book About Mother Teresa 6. April 2017
Von Mystery Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I couldn't get past the author's poor sentence structure. I had to reread some of the sentences twice to understand what the author was saying. As another reviewer stated, the book is "boring and difficult to read." There was also way too much information about behind the scenes church politics. I wanted to know more about Mother Teresa and her life among the poor. I can recommend a book that I enjoyed very much called "Mother Teresa of Calcutta: A Personal Portrait - 50 Inspiring Stories Never Before Told" by Fr. Leo Maasburg for a deeper insight into Mother Teresa. I realize that it was the author's first book but I wish an editor had gone through it before it was published. It could have been so much more than it was. Disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Authoritative, sober, fact-heavy treatment of Mother Teresa's radiant life and ministry 21. November 2012
Von JordanJasper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Spink does a virtually unassailable job in her sturdy, by-the-numbers account of the life of Mother Teresa's entire life. Imagine her bio being written by someone objective, professional, ethical, and who had significant access to Mother and the circle of "helpers" in her astonishing life. Spink is not interested in being sentimental; she is interested in being accurate and keeps any bias she might have to a blessed minimum. Forget the maniacal raving and hysterical shrieking and flopsweat neurosis emanating like toxic waste from sybaritic roué-types like what's-his-name. What *was* his name? Funny, it doesn't seem to endure.

The name of Mother Teresa does, however, endure, and this well-written, organized, compact, fact-laden bio certainly delineates the many varied, complex, and breathtakingly simple reasons for that endurance. My recommendation is to buy this along with 'Come Be My Light' -- the collection of Teresa's letters to her spiritual directors published posthumously. Read the bio first for the facts and then delve into the mystery of her spiritual greatness via the letters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Yet 11. September 2016
Von KSJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I've read 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 the read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Biography 13. September 2013
Von MGQP - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I led a book group discussion of this inspiring biography. I'm not Catholic, but as a Christian and a human being, I was moved to look more for miracles and to serve more by reading about Mother Teresa in this well-written book. Also, I read the previous edition of this book a few years ago and I was pleased an mostly satisfied with the updates addressing criticism and other post-humous info on Mother Teresa, sainthood, etc.

I love Mother Teresa and this book is the very best one that I have read. I have read some wonderful books about her but I really do like this one the best.
