Mother Teresa by Lousie Chipley Slavicek Amazon.com Review
This entry in the Modern Peacemakers series offers a concise, informative overview of the life of Mother Teresa, born Agnes Bojaxhiu, from her Eastern European childhood to her heeding of God's call as a teenager to her founding of the Missionaries of Charity, which would work with the "poorest of the poor" in Calcutta. Although her many good works receive full credit here, this biography also includes frank discussion of the controversies stemming from the nun's receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Insights about the debate are provided by her acceptance speech, excerpted here, containing attacks on abortion and artificial contraception; Slavicek also acknowledges critics' claims that Mother Teresa's efforts were concentrated more on converting India's poor to Catholicism than on genuinely improving the quality of their lives. Detailed sidebars explain the history of the Nobel Peace Prize and offer insight into India's culture and history. Appendixes include a chronology, chapter notes for quotations, a bibliography, and titles for further reading.
