Inter-Varsity Press Finding Calcutta: What Mother Teresa Taught Me About Meaningful Work and Service

Mother Teresa believed that we must each find our own Calcutta--the place where you're called to serve others and God. Mary Poplin had only been a Christian for 3 years when in 1996 she traveled to India to work with Mother Theresa and the Missionaries of Charity. Finding Calcutta is her memoir of that time and all she learned about service, humility, compassion and spirituality--and how she's applied her experience to the rest of her life and work. Paperback.

This book was deeper and more challenging than I thought it would be. Mary Poplin presents important life lessons in a way that is quite easy to read. It is challenging to the way that I live my life, making me consider things I need to change in myself. The way these lessons are presented there is no reaction or defensiveness internally, since she is telling what she learned; I can just listen and consider it as if a friend was telling me about their own spiritual journey.

Not only was this an excellent written work, but it is truly anointed by the Holy Spirit, and speaks deep truth, yet will meet each reader wherever they are in their life. This is an absolute MUST to give as gifts, not only to Christians but to those that have not met the Savior Lord Jesus Christ yet!
This is going to be my main gift to give at Christmas this year, 2011.

This is a really good book. I just finished reading it, and I'm going to read it again and highlight it this time, because there is so much I want to remember. The author is very honest about her experiences and the lessons she learned from Mother Teresa, but ties in bits of wisdom from many others, including C.S. Lewis. She gives the reader a lot to think about.
