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 Misérable
s, 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.
In Session4 titled The Gift of Love: Marius and Cosette, the author describes the love story that takes place between Marius and Cosette. Their love and marriage symbolize hope, stability, and reconciliation in the midst of a bleak and difficult world.
