The Wisdom of Les Miserables: Lessons From the Heart of Jean Valjean
What can a 21st century seeker learn about life, love and spirituality from a 19th century French novel? Plenty.
Alfred J. Garrotto offers Victor Hugo’s flawed protagonist as a model for anyone in search of practical wisdom for everyday living. One of fiction’s most beloved characters, the former convict and life-long fugitive represents humanity in both its brokenness and its potential for selfless—even saintly—living.
Reflection topics range from forgiveness and the primacy of conscience to the joys and sorrows of parenthood. Each Reflection explores a universal theme, including the daily call to spiritual and moral conversion and the life-lessons parents impart to their children. Questions at the end of each Reflection invite you to use the book as your personal wisdom journal.
