St. Dominic: The Story of a Preaching Friar
By Donald J. Goergen, OP, Forward by Timothy Radcliffe, OP
Paulist Press 2016
In this new telling of the story of St. Dominic de Guzman, founder of the Dominicans, the image that takes shape is that of a dear friend, a brother, a father, a guide of souls, and yes, also a preacher, an organizer, a diplomat, a wisdom figure. Fr. Donald Goergen, OP writes from long years of a deep relationship with someone who has become a model and mentor in his own life and ministry. Here he shares with us this personal friendship to show us that Dominic can be a close friend of each of us too.
