Item Description...
The life of Mother Teresa spanned the 20th century and, in ways no one could have foreseen, transformed it. This brief biography offers highlights from her humble yet splendid life, and shows why the love she embodied will last forever.

Publishers Description
Mother Teresa's life influenced and inspired a generation. Winner of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize and founder of a worldwide network of more than 4,600 sisters in schools, shelters, clinics, hospitals, leprosia, and hospices, Mother Teresa embodied the compassion and love that Jesus taught. Her life is chronicled here in a masterful account composed of first-hand reports, photographs, and her own timeless words.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Lacking but may serve as worthy general introduction.  Apr 27, 1998
Christian Feldman, in "Mother Teresa: Love Stays", does not do justice for the life and work of Mother Teresa. Writing from an apparently distant and impersonal perspective, Feldman lacks the affectivity vital in capturing the tremendous love of a woman so devoted to Christ and his suffering children. "Love Stays" is, however, sufficient as a newpaper-like account and may serve as a worthy general introduction.

The documentaion is somewhat thorough and accurate. Events and interviews in which she participated are quantitatively well covered. Frequently, Feldman inserts quotes from Mother Teresa; however, it would be much more effective and informative if all of these sources were footnoted. Perhaps off-setting this, Feldman does include comments from those who had the pleasure of meeting her and working with her - complete with the context of the situation in which the quotes were taken.

Betraying his generally objective writing style, Feldman not infrequently inserts his own subjective commentaries. He proposes thoughts and connections Mother Teresa may have had without any real evidence, such as the suggestion that she was thinking of her own second calling when speaking about the Annunciation. He misleads the reader by putting words on Mother Teresa's lips, using quotation marks followed by such clarifications as "she seemed to be asking." (p. 24) He puts feelings in her heart that many would not find compatible with the loving woman's long-standing reputation, such as diagnosing her with "profound depression" in one section and, further on, describes her as "hissing" at some would be attackers. Such conclusions need backing up and should be left for the reader to determine.

To his credit, Feldman opens the book with a heart wrenching prologue which so beautifully captures the spirit of Mother Teresa and her selfless work with the abandoned and dying. Unfortunately, the rest of the book does not always follow true to this initial picture. Perhaps his intent was to paint a more human picture of Mother Teresa complete with connections to the secular and non-Christian worl. But this denies the splendid reality of the greatness of this little woman and even, at times, seems painstakingly fabricated. For those of us who wish to share a close spiritual affinity with her, this book leaves us dry.
