Biography: general

Mother Teresa is an unsuprassed icon of simplicity, faith and compassion. As she daily cared for the poor of Calcutta, she challenged the world to greater acts-to the importance of small things done with great love. First published in 1971, Something Beautiful for God is an uplifting chronicle of Malcolm Muggeridge's discovery of Mother Teresa and the religious order she instituted. It is not, in the ordinary sense, a biography, but arises out of Muggeridge's observations and reflections on being with her in Calcutta. It is the classic work that introduced Mother Teresa to the Western world. Now colour illustrated throughout, the book includes, along with Muggeridge's reflections, the transcript of his conversations with Mother Teresa and a selection of her own writings and meditations. Her message is forever relevant. About the Author Born in 1903, Malcolm Muggeridge was educated at Selhurst Grammar School and Selwyn College, Cambridge. He started his career as a university lecturer in Cairo before taking up journalism. As a journalist he worked around the world on The Guardian, Calcutta Statesman, the Evening Standard and the Daily Telegraph, and then in 1953 became editor of Punch where the remained for four years. In the 1930-45 war he served as a Major in the Intelligence Corps, being awarded both the Legion d'Honneur and the Croix de Guerre. In later years Malcolm Muggeridge became best known as a broadcaster both on television and radio for the BBC. He died at the age of 87 in 1990.
