About the presenter, Malcolm Muggeridge: (1903-1990)
A celebrated journalist and author, often compared favorably to G.K. Chesterton and C.S. Lewis. He may be best known for introducing Mother Teresa to the world through his timeless and person biography Something Beautiful for God.
"For me personally, too, doing the commentaries has been a great clarification over and above identifying God's Spies and specifying their role in particular circumstances and at a particular time. It has made me grasp as never before that God has an inner strategic (as distinct from tactical) purpose for His creation, thereby enabling me to see through the Theater of the Absurd, which is what life seems to be, and into the Theater of Fearful Symmetry, which is what it is. Thus reality sorts itself out, like film coming into sync, and everything that exists, from the tiniest atom to the illimitable universe in which our tiny earth revolves, everything that happens, from the most trivial event to the most seemingly momentous, makes one pattern, tells one story, is comprehended in one prayer: Thy will be done." ~ Malcolm Muggeridge
