What makes this book so attractive? Probably the short and attractive narrative style of each section: always starting with some Don Bosco education story, often intertwined with current educational experience, and at the end of each 2-3 page section you find some concrete suggestion and Don Bosco saying. For those who are not yet familiar with this book, just the themes of the 7 sections are informative: 'Education - not a problem to be solved but an act of love; Above everything (listening, joy, prayer, enthusiasm, attention, word to the ear...), Because the world is not a lonely planet; The laws of progress and work; Education means self-giving; By any means always aim high, and, A great gift of friendship.
Don Bosco Media Publications was started by the 'Saint Korean Martyrs Province' of Korea in 1996, and focuses mainly on Salesianity magazine and book production. On their new 'online digital platform' you can browse all available books - from Don Bosco's "Memoirs of the Oratory", through to the Lives of Don Bosco and other Salesian saints, the full series of 7 volumes by Fr Arthur Lenti 'Don Bosco Spirit and History up to some education, catechetics or youth ministry publications. Most of the DB Media products are translations from English or Italian authors.
The first part of this book published in Korea in 1987 has already been published more than 20 times under different publishers (Saint Joseph Publications, Catholic Publications). It was a long journey to recover the 'original rights'. The Korean language translation was done by the FMA Sisters, while the distribution is mainly through the numerous Salesian Cooperators (NB - Korean ASC province has more than 700 promised members). "Don Bosco Media" publication was registered in July 1996 and since that time published every year 6 issues of the 'Salesian Bulletin' (in Korean: The Salesian Family) and some 40 titles of Salesianity publications.
We hope this Salesian 'Classic' will find its way into more EAO language translations and also find its way into the hands of all our lay mission partners!
