EducationalPreventiveSystemofDBToday Cover500

 

Don Bosco Publications is delighted to launch the English edition of The Educational Preventive System of Don Bosco Today, by Carlo Nanni SDB, renowned philosopher of education and Rector of the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome.

 

The book presents Don Bosco's approach, which is based on the awareness that education is not only a matter of instruction and the acquisition of skills, but also concerns the formation of intelligence, of freedom, of the capacity to love and to do good to others. Prof Nanni demonstrates how this tried and tested system is applied today, working with young people facing the issues of our contemporary society. 

 

Essential reading and inspiration for all who work with the young, this English edition was translated by Jim Gallagher SDB and Brian Jerstice SDB, by kind permission of the author.

This little volume tells the inspiring story of a former street boy whose life was transformed by the influence and education of Don Bosco.
