Overview

The provocative ideas and touching insights found in The Joy in Loving spring from incidents in Mother Teresa's own remarkable life. She speaks of men and women who have lived and died uncomplainingly, even in the midst of great poverty and deprivation; of wealthy businessmen whose indifference has been transformed into compassion and charity, and of her encounters with people and governments around the globe. Through all of this, Mother Teresa emphasizes the need for a disciplined, loving family life, for "in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world." Drawing on more than seventy years of selfless service to the poorest of the poor, she discusses the importance of work and prayer, charity and service, the right to life and, above all, the need to love—unconditionally and absolutely.

This book is written in an easy to read format. It can be used as a daily guide for prayer and meditation, or read from cover to cover in a matter of hours. Mother Teresa teaches us how one can grow closer to Holiness, regardless of religious affliation or denomination. Her emphasis is on the poor, but not necessarily the poor who hunger and thirst for food or water. Additionally, she highlights the importance of the family and her concerns for the youth and children within this world. It is simplistic, yet one of the deepest books I've ever read. It is a book about her life, her prayers, her acts. Above all, it is a book about and of Love.
