'God will write through you.' Those were some of the last words Mother Teresa had spoken to filmmaker Christina Stevens - urging her to share her story with the world.
A similar calling had come months earlier, when Mother Teresa appeared to Christina in a vision, summoning her to India to film the Saint-to-be's message to the world. Without hesitation, she gathered a film crew and boarded a plane to India. It was a widely known fact that Mother Teresa did not like cameras and refused interviews, but trusting her intuition, Christina embarked on a life-changing journey that led her to unexpected places and profound discoveries. As she reveals the shame and beauty pulsing in what was once referred to as the black hole of the world, Christina leads you to recognize your calling and discover your own path to love - just as she did while facing death and life-beyond-death amid experiences of deep compassion and peace.
Interspersed with Mother Teresa's most poignant words of wisdom, you will soon see that the power of love is everywhere around you.

I'm not one for spiritual reading, but I found Christina's journey fascinating and believable. As a matter of fact, I'm astral travelling my way to the bookstore right now.

It's riveting! I was going to say mind-blowing, but I think mind-expanding is more accurate.

The words and the teachings of Mother Teresa have greatly impacted my life for many years. As a young girl, it was her teachings that awakened my spirit and later sparked my interest to become a nun. Mother Teresa... has profoundly influenced my spiritual foundation and is my philosophy for living. Like me, you have been led by the greatest gift of all - love. I can now add Love: The Saint and the Seeker as a contributing to me to my spiritual evolution and growth.
