In this Mother Teresa biography by David Scott, we meet the Mother Teresa that we would never have met simply from television interviews or news images. A complex figure, Mother Teresa found her life's work only after years of false starts and by overcoming great practical difficulties. Her love for the poor was accompanied by a stern critique of the rich and powerful. And she lived much of her life in an anguished dark night of the soul. Discover the real Mother Teresa in this inspiring yet unsentimental biography of her life

From the Back Cover:

Praise for A Revolution of Love

"A Revolution of Love belongs in the hands of everyone who loves thos most beloved of modern women."--SCOTT HAHN,  professor of Scripture and Theology, Franciscan University of Steubenville, and author of The Lamb's Supper

"A Revolution of Love is a brilliant, clear-eyed, and concise look at Mother Teresa. Scott powerfully presents not only her great love, compassion, and service, but also shares with us the questions, doubts, and unimaginable spiritual struggles that plagued her heart and directed her life."--MATTHEW KELLY, author of The Rhythm of Life: Living Every Day with Passion & Purpose

"This is the book the world needs now. A Revolution of Love is the first true interpretation of Mother Teresa's life.  It is a vivid and delightfully readable biography for those who wish to imitate her in some way--and that should mean every living Christian."--MIKE AQUILINA, vice president, St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, and author of What Catholics Believe and The Fathers of the Church.

"In graceful and eloquent prose, Scott has rescued Mother Teresa from popular myths and restored to us a flesh and blood woman who suffered and struggled for the sake of others.  The Mother Teresa we think we know was a media stereotype.  The Mother Teresa to whom Scott introduces us is a passionatley human saint for our times."--GREG ERLANDSON, publisher and president of Our Sunday Visitor Publishing Division

From the Inside Flap:

"AT A TIME WHEN WE SAVOR MOTHER TERESA'S INFLUENCE ON OUR WORLD, DAVID SCOTT'S  A Revolution of Love OFFERS A COMPREHENSIVE AND GRAND VIEW OF HER VOCATION, HER TEACHING, AND HER HERITAGE IN CHRIST. HE ALSO PROVIDES A WORTHY EXPLORATION INTO THE MAKEUP OF HOLINESS." --Lucinda Vardey, editor and compiler of the best seller A Simple Path

WHO WAS MOTHER TERESA?

In this inspiring yet unsentimental look at the life of the first truly global saint, author David Scott argues that the glitter of Mother Teresa's celebrity often obscured the full splendor of this beloved and holy woman.

Moving photogrphs and unforgetable television images showed Mother Teresa as an unflappable, single-minded advocate for the poor.  In reality, she was a complex figure. She found her life's work only after years and years of false starts and by overcoming great practical difficulties. Her love for the poor was accompanied by a stern critique of the rich and powerful.  Most amazing, she lived much of her life in an anguished dark night of the soul. David Scott's A Revolution of Love offers readers a fresh appraisal of the full meaning of Mother Teresa's life and work.  It shows her to be a saint exquisitelymatched for our times--a tiny but towering figure who wanted nothing less than to knit the world together in a revolution of love.
