    About "Malcolm Muggeridge"

      • Malcolm Muggeridge

        Thomas Malcolm Muggeridge was an English journalist, author, media personality, and satirist During World War II, he was a soldier and a spy He is credited with popularising Mother Teresa and in his later years became a Catholic.


    1. "Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted; to understand rather than to be understood; to love rather than to be loved; for it is by forgetting self that one finds; it is by dying that one awakens to eternal life. Amen."

    2. This biography is interesting in the approach/format: some interviews and some observations from a man who spent time with Mother Theresa. Muggeridge explains at one point in the book how his admiration for her almost becomes a religion in itself, which I can fully understand. That is the overall tone of the book. Her devotion to the poorest of the poor is shown to be so extraordinary, and her denial of her own needs so beyond comprehension, how could she have been human? This will affect me eve [...]

    3. The most interesting parts were Mother Teresa's interviews and letters. I can't see anyone saying anything controversial about this woman, so it was nice to get information from the source. The book is mostly about when the author went to make a documentary of their work with the poor in Calcutta, though, with sections about his personal journey towards or not towards joining the Catholic Church, which was of least interest to me. Published in 1971 or thereabouts, there is no mention of rumors o [...]

    4. When asked by Muggeridge about giving the poor "things they needed," Mother Theresa answers, "It is not very often things they need. What they need much more is what we offer them. In these twenty years of work amongst people, I have come more and more to realize that it is being unwanted that is the worst disease that any human can experience. Nowadays we have found medicine for leprosy and lepers can be cured. There's medicine for TB and consumptives can be cured. For all kinds of diseases the [...]

    5. Though I did not agree on all points of Mother Theresa's theology or priorities, I found this to be an inspiring and convicting account of her story and purpose. P.S. It's not a biography, so don't expect a beginning-to-end presentation of her life.

    6. The wise reader of this book (and of other books featuring individuals who operate in extreme ranges) will shrug off the inclination to despair of their own mediocrity in the light of overwhelming excellence and take what they read as encouragement to strive towards higher levels themselves. Mother Teresa's total commitment to dwell with and bless the lives of those who are among the most unwanted people of the world represents a total commitment to her religion. She channels her love for God in [...]

    7. This book is utterly beautiful, true to its title. It amazed me the effect Mother Teresa can have on you just through a book--the writing is lovely, but it is she who makes it such a touching experience to read. I completely believe what the author says about how it changed people to just be in her presence. After years of having mainly academic discussions about the faith and trying to keep up with theological arguments, it was humbling to be reminded that theology is important only as much as [...]

    8. I've always wanted to read this and found it for 87 cents. So this pauper is content crawling under the covers at this moment. :) (MARCH 8, 2009)March 9, 2009 Just finished reading this. It's is a gem of a little book. :)

    9. Mother Teresa never wrote an autobiography and instead preferred to focus her time on being with and caring for people. This book is a short 130 pages long and gives a close biographical account of her life history and how she started the Missionaries of Charity. Something Beautiful for God also includes documentation on her "Way of Love" and the Missionaries of Charity creeds on silence, humility, holiness, prayer and joy. Written from the perspective of a British Journalist, Muggeridge shares [...]

    10. I love Mother Theresa's rebuttal against defeatists who were critical against her for attempting to make a positive difference in the world and who argued that a major collective solution is required and that individual action to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and take care of the poor are useless efforts because they won't make a meaningful impact. I wish everyone took the responsible approach that she did. She acted. She took Christ's teaching serious and applied them in her own humble way. [...]

    11. I will be honest and tell you that I picked up this book* more for my admiration of Malcolm Muggeridge than of Mother Teresa. Which is to say that Mother Teresa has often been reduced to basic quotes and online memes; these small doses of inspiration shared and reshared - paired with my ignorance of her story - has had little power to inspire.The book reads much like Literary Travel Journal, which is my favourite genre. It is not a typical biography in that it is not an accounting of the life an [...]

    12. I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars; but that’s not what she would want. She would simply hope I would keep the focus on Him. So in that effort, I would simply remind any reader to draw closer to Christ by loving his/her neighbor— especially someone who is poor in body, mind, or spirit. By being a light in a dark world— for Him, you can find joy and hope and extend that to others.

    13. Note: Not technically a biography.I am utterly at a loss for words. I will have to think about how I want to describe her effect on me.

    14. If Malcom Muggeridge never wrote anything else in his life with the exception of Something Beautiful for God, his literary and journalistic reputation would have been assured. An eloquent yet succinct account of Mother Teresa's life among the utterly destitute and ravaged of India, the narrative is compellingly told without any fanfare or hardened journalistic cynicism. Muggeridge is a witness to the actions of Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity, and he writes as such.Malcom Muggeridg [...]

    15. It’s more of Malcolm’s self-discovery and personal reflections on spending time with Mother Teresa than a biography, and is beautifully written.The book was first published in 1971, then at the lovely cost of 40p in the UK!Mother Teresa prays…"Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love – Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. God loves a cheerful giver. She gives most who gives with joy. The best way to show our gratitude to God and the people is to accept everything w [...]

    16. Listen with your heart.The audio version of this book is very special because you actually get to hear Mother Teresa speaking as well as other missionary sisters that Malcolm Muggeridge interviews.Muggeridge is in the process of doing a documentary for BBC on Mother Teresa. This was in 1969 but throughout the process he is very moved by the mission of Mother Teresa, so much so that a few years later he converted to Catholicism. But one cannot convert to a religion, one has to see through the eye [...]

    17. The book is divided into four parts:The first is Malcolm Muggeridge recounting his experience with meeting Mother Teresa for the first time. It was definitely my favorite part of the book. It certainly reads biographical of Mother Teresa, but there is also an overarching sense of an autobiographical faith journey for Mr. Muggeridge. It certainly makes for fascinating reading due to both the topic and Muggeridge's mastery of the language.The second portion is titled "Mother Teresa's Way of Love", [...]

    18. Something Beautiful for God was definitely not what I expected. Instead of writing a simple biography of Mother Teresa, the book centers on the author's time interviewing her and seeing how she lived. I felt like most of the book was about the author's thoughts about Mother Teresa. The story wasn't very interesting to me, though I'll admit that I learned more about her simple life and the rules she lived by. Mother Teresa is an inspirational figure, but the book didn't seem to convey that in a s [...]

    19. There are four parts to this small book. The first part deals with Malcolm Muggeridge's thoughts on meeting Mother Teresa in the late 70s when he interviewed her for a television program, followed with his thoughts on filming a documentary of Mother Theresa and her ministries in Calcutta. There is a section with her quotes and prayers, followed by a transcript of the interview. The last part of the book contains thoughts of Muggeridge plus responses he received from the program. He includes thes [...]

    20. Second reading August 2016First reading May 2014:What a beautiful book. This was the first authorized book about Blessed Teresa of Calcutta ever written. Mother did not want a biography written about her. Instead, this book is a peek into the work of The Missionaries of Charity. The first half of the book is narrative. The second half of the book is taken from the transcripts of the movie interviews. While much more is known about Mother now, this book has the advantage of being the first book a [...]

    21. A great book because of Mother Teresa's greatness."Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. Anyone may gather it and no limit is set. Everyone can reach this love through meditation, spirit of prayer and sacrifice, by an intense inner life.""It is being unwanted that is the worst disease that any human being can ever experience. Nowadays we have found medicine for leprosy and lepers can be cured. There's medicine for TB and consumptives can be cured. For all kinds [...]

    22. Eish! This book was amazing! I truly loved it! It both encouraged and inspired me. When one reads about people like Mother Teresa often one can feel bad afterwards like "Wow I am so selfish, I suck, I'm doing nothing compared to her!" With this book that wasn't the case. I did often feel challenged to live more selfless, and to show love to my neighbor. But I also left this book feeling the awe that God is a loving Father who offers His deep love & grace for me. I will definitely read it aga [...]

    23. Christ’s life based on work, grants require accounts to track, Christianity a religion of slaves go begging, all things work together for love of God, kind light lovely light, to reveal inner realities of outward creation, lights around heads, honor compassion joy, Jesus never gives desires without fulfilling, thoughtfulness, joy from burning love, peace from pure heart, biggest disease to be unwanted, poor help us love God better, prayer enlarges heart, love in action, without love and suffer [...]

    24. I do love Malcolm Muggeridge's writing. However, this particular book about Mother Teresa is hagiography. The picture that emerges is that of a perfect saint. There is inspiration, but no complexity, no real struggles. Of course, revelations about the darkness she struggled with did not come until after her death years later. Muggeridge is delightfully sincere in his almost-adoration: this is how he saw her. I believe she had a crucial role in his coming to faith (he is still struggling with tha [...]

    25. I have always had an interest in learning more about Mother Teresa. This book, although not a biography, taught me a lot more then I already knew of her selfless kindness and love for the poor and dejected peoples each whose life she saw Christ. Her personal sacrifices in serving others is an amazing story. To me she exemplifies the most "Christ-like" life I have ever seen in a woman. I can only strive to be even the slightest like her, and would in achieving this feel that I offered the world s [...]

    26. I just finished this book with my homeschool coop that I teach.While I found the information enlightening, especially the interview with Mother Teresa in the back portion, I thought the writing was forced, lacked focus, and rambled on.I know the book is older and it's a non-fiction, both of which I don't normally read, so I have to take that into consideration.On the plus side, it was a fast read and the pictures are moving. There were many philosophical thoughts presented by the writer that I l [...]
