Dominican Brothers: Conversi, Lay, and Cooperator Friars 

by Fr. Augustine Thompson O.P.

Focusing on the historical lives of these humble men who have been a part of the Order since its foundation and many of whom are saints and blesseds, in 1216. Fr. Augustine paints a vivid picture of the brothers who have served the Church throughout the last 800 years, detailing their various ministries throughout history and their role in today’s ever-changing world.

“I am sure that many will be interested in reading this book, especially since it is now clear that St. Martin de Porres was actually a donatus and so a member of the “Third Order.” ~Fr. Augustine Thompson, O.P.
