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.

Sessions include:

  • Grace—Jean Valjean
  • Poverty—Fantine
  • Revolution—Les Amis (The Friends)
  • Sacrifice—Eponine
  • Justice—Javert
  • Hope—Conclusion

The Leader Guide contains everything needed to guide a group through the six-week study including session plans, activities, and discussion questions, as well as multiple format options.
