"The Love of Christ" is a collection of spiritual counsels by Mother Teresa edited into four parts by Georges Gorree and Jean Barbier. The first two parts deal with the subjects of 'God' and 'The Other'. The editors draw from the words of Mother Teresa found in Malcolm Muggeridge's 'Something Beautiful for God' and an earlier work of theirs called 'Amour sans Frontiere'. In these sections the words of Mother Teresa are interspersed with some commentary by the editors. The part III has extracts from Mother Teresa's letters to her sisters and part IV is a commentary on the constitution of the Missionaries of Charity by Mother Teresa. All these counsels reflect a simple and consistently earnest and zealous person filled with the love of God. She has a clear and direct style and no one can miss the fire in her heart. It is a valuable source book to know this modern saint more closely and to draw inspiration from her.
This is the kind of book that is useful for meditation and reflection. Its companion books "A Gift for God" and "Life in the Spirit" by the same publishers, are equally inspiring.
