"This book, more than any other, shows us the saint and her significance. It belongs in the hands of everyone who loves this most beloved of modern women." --Dr. Scott Hahn
"This book reminds us as Mother Teresa always did that God calls all of us to holiness, to be saints." --José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles
"For the first time we are given significant insight into the inner-struggles that produced the outer-triumph of this icon of modern holiness." --Matthew Kelly, Author of Rediscovering Catholicism
From the Inside Flap
The countless sweet photos of her smiling at babies showed Mother Teresa to be a single-minded advocate for the poor. But she was a woman with a will whose strength has been matched by few souls in history. Mother Teresa broke death's stranglehold on the poor of Calcutta, and she showed us how to conquer the sin and darkness in what she called the "slums of the hearts of modern man."
Part biography and part spiritual reading, these pages bring to light little-known stories from Mother Teresa's life that will help you to grow in your love of God. You will learn her approach to reading Scripture, what enabled her to persevere through agonizing nights, and the remarkable some would say mystical events that led her to start the Missionaries of Charity.
In considering Mother Teresa, her private visions, and her secret sufferings, David Scott has discovered scores of early episodes and chance encounters that point to later, larger meanings. These remarkable patterns, he suggests, show that Mother Teresa's life was choreographed from above, as if a divine script had been written for her from before her birth.
In these pages, you will meet for the first time the Mother Teresa who challenged the ancient Goddess of Death and became the first saint of our global village. You will read as she describes, in long-secret letters, the dark night of her soul. The woman you will meet is one that God himself sent to you as a clear sign that despite pain and suffering in our lives and in our world, God's good love will prevail . . . beginning in the slums of our hearts.
We are all called to holiness, and the saints are sent to us as "real life" examples of God's love. With Mother Teresa as your guide, you'll learn how to follow God's call and find holiness in a world marked by the shadow of death and growing indifference to God. Indeed, you'll learn how to be an everyday missionary of Christ's love in the ordinary activities of your daily life.

We often think of Mother Teresa as a person with unflinching faith in God. This book spends time getting to know the person behind the saint.
This book speaks to the heart of the matter. It's all about love. Love that is unconditional from Our Father. Love that shapes our lives and those around us. We are made in the Image of the Father. I take this to mean that we are perfectly made for His use.
This is one of those books that I have turned back page corners to find passages again and again.
