Another Story Must Begin

A Lent Course Based on Les Miserables

by Jonathan Meyer


Price: £5.99
Publisher:DLT (Darton, Longman and Todd Ltd)
Published:November 2013

A great little lent course that utilises the current passion for Les Miserables.

Each week is focused on looking at an individual character(s) and from them pulling and teasing out the idea’s that are incorporated into them. It concludes with week five, where we look at the issue of Redemption and Salvation as played out in the book and film.

What is good about this course is that it is designed to work with both the film, stage production and book, so there are suggestions for the film clip to be watched or alternatively for one of the songs from the stage production to be listened to or the lyrics read.

Each week there is a comprehensive overview in advance of the actual studies, and each study is very well designed with a good pull in of actual biblical references and reflection too.

A very good study that I would think would be very popular indeed.
