hitxhens Perhaps a little short – as others have said, it would have been good to see Hitchens take twice as many pages to eviscerate Mother Theresa. Nevertheless, Hitchens is always a great read and he covers the topic reasonably completely. I was decidedly underwhelmed by this book.

Book review: The Missionary Position – Discerning Reader

Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice. In a frank expose of the Teresa cult, Hitchens details the nature and limits of one woman’s mission to the world’s poor. He asks whether Mother Teresa’s good works answer any higher purpose than the need of the world’s privileged to see someone, somewhere, doing something for the Third World.

He unmasks pseudo-miracles, questions Mother Teresa’s fitness to adjudicate on matters of sex and reproduction, and reports on a version of saintly ubiquity which affords genial relations with dictators, corrupt tycoons and convicted frauds.
