This is the paperback release of the best-selling hardcover biography of Mother Angelica by Raymond Arroyo.
Mother Angelica – The Remarkable Story of a Nun, Her Nerve, and a Network of Miracles
"A rattling good story of fear, faith, courage, and bulldog tenacity, beautifully told. The drama of Mother Angelica's life is a powerful reminder that the extraordinary lies just beyond the ordinary–if we have eyes to see and ears to hear."
-George Weigel, author of Witness to Hope: the Biography of Pope John Paul II
"Arroyo is a great biographer. His style of writing is as straightforward, exciting, and irresistible as Mother Angelica, herself. This book reveals the soul and personality of the famous nun so truly, that it's sure to inspire countless readers to imitate her, by striving to achieve impossible, 'ridiculous' and often miraculous feats."
-Anthony DeStefano, author of A Travel Guide to Heaven
"If Rita Rizzo was an unlikely candidate for a Poor Clare's convent, Mother Angelica was an even more unlikely choice to establish, in Alabama, the business empire that is the Eternal Word Television Network. In this candid, captivating biography, Raymond Arroyo delivers not just a great story of a savvy and courageous woman, but multiple examples of the claim that all things are possible with God. I highly recommend it."
-Ron Hansen, author of Mariette in Ecstasy
"'Mother Angelica' is the beautifully told story of a beautiful woman of God whose toughness, tenacity, drive and determination built a network to bring the Catholic truth and culture to a nation that has never been more desperately in need of them."
– Pat Buchanan, Columnist and Author of The Death of the West
"Mother Angelica's personal words to me, her courageous example, and her constant prayers helped inspire my portrayal of Jesus in 'The Passion of the Christ'. No one could have captured the essence of this modern day saint better than Raymond Arroyo. His narrative gifts and understanding of Mother are clearly evident in this truthful and often candid depiction of one nun's struggle to bring God to the multitudes. Surely this book, and Mother's life will have an incredible enduring legacy."
– Jim Caviezel, Actor
"Raymond Arroyo, one of America's leading journalists in reporting religion, has written a fascinating story of how faith transformed a cloistered nun into a media giant. This is an exciting rendition of a story that is more extraordinary and surely more heartwarming than fiction."
– Robert Novak, Columnist
