Book Description:

Amidst the millions of committed Christians in each generation, a handful rise to special prominence. Learn more about their exciting and inspiring lives in Barbour's "Heroes of the Faith" series.

This is the life story of the Roman Catholic nun who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and is known throughout the world as a missionary of charity.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhius to a relatively affluent, Albanian-speaking Catholic family in a part of Eastern Europe then controlled by Turkish-speaking Serbs, Mother Teresa was surrounded by various religious and political ideas and carefully reared by her mother in a tradition of tolerance and concern for others. At 18, she decided to become a teaching nun in India. Teaching at the Loreto convent school in Calcutta still did not put her close enough to her vision of service, so after some difficulty she received permission to live among the poor and to help them. She continued to attract followers and money to carry on the work. While simply worded and detailed, Wellman's prose seems dutiful and pedestrian, and much of the text is written in undocumented dialogue. Although the book relates the facts of life in India, readers don't really sense it. There is only the merest splash of color about Mother Teresa's life. Sadly, there are no illustrations. By contrast, William J. Jacobs's Mother Teresa (Millbrook, 1991) is short, evocative, and profusely illustrated, and much more likely to appeal to casual perusers.
