52 Little Lessons from Les Miserables by Bob Welch

Les Miserables is a classic for a reason. Bob Welch has designed a lovely little book to supplement this iconic story, whether you love the unabridged book, the movies, or the musical.

52 Little Lessons

Unlike the source material, the sections are not long. You could read the entire book in just a few days, or you could spread them out over the course of a year (one a week) as part of a devotional time. You could also use this book as you read through Hugo’s fantastic work. The 52 chapters are short, but filled not only with story insights but also practical and spiritual applications for the reader.

These lessons will help you dig deeper into the original text (or context of the movie) and see meaning in sometimes overlooked moments. There are also some questions at the end which would help make this a suitable choice for a book club.

The Importance of Les Miserables

Les Miserables is an important story for any Christian to know. The Truth is there, the meaning is deep, and it is well worth the time and effort.

Bob Welch’s new book could help in that study. If it’s been a bit since you’ve read the book or seen the musical, I have to warn you: this little book will make you pull out your soundtrack or your paperback copy. You’ll want to immerse yourself in Hugo’s classic again, maybe even those long sections about the Paris sewers.

Highly recommended for Christian fans of Les Miserables in any of its beloved incarnations.

I received a copy of this book from Book Look bloggers for this review. Opinions are my own.
