ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Donald J. Goergen, O.P. was provincial of the Province of St. Albert the Great U.S.A., from 1985 - 1994. He is a teacher, lecturer, and theologian. He has published many articles and books, including a series on Christology.
Fr. Goergen writes: "The letters in this volume were originally written to my Dominican brothers in the Province of St. Albert the Great, U.S.A. The Province judged them to have value beyond the Dominican family and asked that they be published in oder to make them more widely available. The letters and addresses included here cover a range of issues pertinent to the future of religious life."
Patricia Walters, O.P. in her Forward writes:
"This volume is, at its heart, an example of fine preaching. Its contents flow from reflection on Scripture and tradition, engagement in contemporary issues and deep love for the church and for a particular community. They demonstrate a knowledge of history and current magisterial teaching. It is preaching which has passed through the crucible of experience and contemplation and which invites a response of dialogue and conversion. Such preaching has power to move many other women and men hungering for insight and thirsting for holiness."
