Written by one of the foremost authorities on St. Dominic, this book represents the latest and most concise and readable spiritual biography of St. Dominic. The focus of the biography is the way in which St. Dominic embodied the role of Christ as preacher and the results that came from this grace. From his earliest youth, Sacred Scripture was the heart and foundation of Dominic's spiritual life. He never ceased to plunge into the Word of God, to study it and to pray it. Fr. Bedouelle thus documents how St. Dominic's whole life and mission was one continuous proclamation of the power of the Gospel to transform individual lives and society. ~Softcover, 296 pages.
