This is the fourth book on the life of Saint John Baptist de La Salle (1651–1719), founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and patron saint of all teachers, written by Jean-Baptiste Blain. Often called Spirit and Virtues, it goes back through the life of De La Salle and demonstrates his virtues with stories. In addition to offering an English translation of Blain’s biography of De La Salle, this volume also includes an informative introduction and extensive notes incorporating Lasallian literature and studies.
The Mind and Heart of John Baptist de La Salle is part of the Lasallian Publications series, which produced volumes on the life, writings, and work of De La Salle and on the early history of the Brothers.
