A Little More Information

Here is the description from the flyleaf of the book:

“This history presents the stories of numerous foundations and ventures, and recounts the lives of the people, most particularly the Brothers, who dedicated their lives to the mission of the Institute.

A major focus in its history is the person of the Brother himself. To understand the Brother is the key to understanding the Institute and its work, and to appreciating the extraordinary contribution made by these men to society and the Church. Here is the portrayal of the spirit that drives these men – deriving from the zeal that first inspires John Baptist de La Salle to begin his work for education.”
