Praying with Victor Hugo and Les Miserables

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In Victor Hugo’s classic, Les Misérables, we find the two main characters, Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert, representing law versus grace; the theme clearly comes through in the book as well as various plays, movies, and musicals. We will contemplate Hugo’s life, what drove him to write this novel, and how it affected society when it was written. Through readings of the book and the use of video clips from movies of this war between law and grace, we can relate this to our own journey with God.
