This Lent ponder the themes of justice, poverty, freedom, and love.
Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables is a truly epic story. Whether you’ve read the novel, seen the Broadway musical, heard its soundtrack, or seen the several screen adaptations, you already know the power in the story. In the six-week Lenten study The Grace of Les Misérables, author and pastor Matt Rawle dives into six ideals found in the story—grace, justice, poverty, revolution, love, and hope—each represented by a character in Hugo’s story. In keeping with his previous works, Rawle brings us to the intersection of Church and Pop Culture by drawing parallels between the iconic story and musical and our Christian calling, inspiring us to both understand our faith and live it out in the world. Additional study components include a DVD, a comprehensive leader guide, a youth resource, and a Worship Resources Flash Drive.
The six-session DVD features Matt Rawle guiding participants through the study. The video sessions are approximately 8–10 minutes in length and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.
