A Little More Information

The spirituality of the first major spiritual writer (1651-1719) to integrate the Christian vocation of education of the poor by lay men and women into a coherent spirituality. This compendium is an excellent, brief sampling of the major works of De La Salle, along with a well-written introduction that describes and contextualizes Lasallian education and the influence of St. John Baptist de La Salle today.
