The Grace of Les Miserables DVD by Matt Rawle
This Lent ponder the themes of justice, poverty, freedom, and love. The hit Broadway Musical, Les Misérables, based on Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel, is one of the longest running musicals in the world. This profound story of Jean Valjean’s quest for redemption and a changed life has inspired audiences to ponder themes of justice, poverty, freedom, and love.
In keeping with his previous works, Matt Rawle brings us to the intersection of Church and Pop Culture by drawing parallels between the popular story and the life of Jesus, another revolutionary who shared a Gospel of justice for those on the margins of life, and in turn, a sacrificial life with the least of us all.
