9781859840542: The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice

In a searching examination of the Teresa cult, Christopher Hitchens recasts our relationship with Mother Teresa of Calcutta. He concludes that, far from being heaven's agent on Earth, Mother Teresa is one of hell's angels.

Review:

A dirty job but someone had to do it. By the end of this elegantly written, brilliantly argued piece of polemic, it is not looking good for Mother Teresa. * Sunday Times * Hitchens argues his case with consummate style. * New York Times * Quite possibly the most brilliant journalist of his generation * Daily Mail *

Book Description:

Recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, feted by politicians, the Church and the world's media, Mother Teresa of Calcutta appears to be on the fast track to sainthood. But what makes Mother Teresa so divine?
