Summer's here, the days are getting longer, and June is the month when we celebrate Father's Day and Volunteers’ Week along with the summer solstice, midsummer and Wimbledon tennis tournament. This year is especially busy as we also celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Take some time out from the busyness of June to reflect and read some of the books we offer.

Saint John Bosco: A Giant of Charity

Saint John Bosco: A Giant of Charity

Augustin Auffray SDB


A biography of St John Bosco.

ISBN 978-1-8383485-0-2

Paperback portrait 148mm x 210mm



This wonderful book was written by Father Augustin Auffray SDB, director of the Salesian Bulletin for over twenty years. He studied the life of Saint John Bosco at its sources in Turin and personally interviewed many of those who had known the Saint when he was alive. It has been described as being "without contest the best biography of this saint".

Father Auffray gives a detailed and gripping account of Saint John Bosco's life and work, clearly showing how this "father of orphans", educator, founder of congregations, builder of churches, tireless apostle, opponent of heresy and error, miracle-worker and servant of the Papacy was truly a giant of Charity, a living image of the eternal love of God for men.

Out of print for a number of years, Te Deum Press is delighted to offer this revised edition which has been completely retypeset and corrected with reference to the original French. The style of language has been updated to suit a 21st century readership.
