Product Description

Review

'A great little lent course that utilises the current passion for Les Miserables'. --Good Book Stall

'Hugo's novel is essentially about issues of suffering, repentance, forgiveness, and grace; the Christian content, including Bible passages, feels appropriate and unforced...(the book) may reach parts of...congregations, which traditional courses fail to attract.' --Church Times

About the Author

Jonathan Meyer is priest-in-charge of St. Mary in the Virgin in Ewelme, which was used as the residence of the Bishop of Digne in the pivotal moment in the Les Miserables movie. He has since run a successful Lent course in his parish, on which this book is based.

Our church has just done this as our lent course.

It isn't the best, and the themes can seem repetitive, but it is not by any means terrible.

My biggest grip is the vague references to the scenes that need watching! Not helpful, especially if you haven't watched the movie many times!
So to help those who are in the same predicament as I was, here are the timings:

SESSION ONE
Fantine
13min 56sec - 18min 58sec
26min 6sec - 30min 33sec

Cosette's Dream
43min 23sec - 44min 27sec

SESSION TWO
The Sharing of Bread...
6min 25sec - 8min 45sec
8min 45sec - 10min 25sec

SESSION THREE
Degradation
0min 35sec - 5min 13sec

The Disarming Effect...
10min 25sec - 13min 55sec

Battles With Conscience
34min 14sec - 38min 34sec

Another Story Must Begin
55min 51sec - 58min 11sec

SESSION FOUR
Duty To The Law
41min 33sec - 43min 19sec

The Way Of The Lord
58min 11sec - 1hour 3min 53sec

I Am The Law...
1hour 57min 59sec - 2hours 4min 47sec

SESSION FIVE
Bring Us Home
1hour 47min 45sec - 1hour 52min 40sec

Who Am I?
2hours 8min 26sec - 2hours 11min 32sec
2hours 15min 32sec - 2hours 23min 31sec

I came across this book when I was looking for worship songs to play at church and as we had been discussing what to do over lent I decided to give it a go. It was only about £3 by Kindle and I thought it was worth it to see what it is like.
Jonathan writes fluently and clearly, he gives a lot of background to why he thought of this course which I have to admit I skim read a bit (I am only seeing if it is worth bringing to my group to properly study) We've previously enjoyed the Lineage of Grace housegroup resources and I also got a lot out of a lent course based on the Prodigal Son painting at my previous church so I do enjoy looking at the deeper allegorical christian meaning of cultural items. So with that background, what do I think so far? Short answer - really great.

I loved the film and in fact went with a big group from church to watch it at the cinema. I read the book Les Miserables years ago and the Bishop has always stayed in my mind. Jonathan uses each of the main characters as a pathway to assess an aspect of your Christian life i.e. Fantine's fall from grace mirrors our fall from grace, her earlier dreams of a pleasant life filled with love etc reflect how we feel when we first come into this world.
I have read the first three characters/chapters so far: Fantine, the Bishop and Jean Valjean and I will definitely be recommending this to my friends and to my housegroup for this years Lent courses.
For £3 who could go wrong?

Excellent Lent Course - it is written for Group Work - unfortunately for me there is no Lenten Group organised in this Parish, so I am working through it on my own - but it is still an excellent exercise in deep thinking and exploration - an unusual Lenten Course - possibly the best I have ever followed.

We have really enjoyed using this book for our Lent course. It has provoked good discussion and flowed along better than many I have led. Unfortunately only 4 stars because the book is nowhere near robust enough to last the course. I have thumbed through it many times and the pages have simply fallen out after 4 weeks of use.

Well written, well laid out and guides you through the 5 sessions for a Lent course. It has all the Biblical references and Leaders notes. Yes you still have to do your homework, but this book guides you through it all. I used it in Lent 2014 with a small group and they got such a lot from it.

Great bible study course, we used this along side the DVD of Les Mes. Loads of material, with themes such as love, redemption, forgiveness etc - the group really enjoyed looking at this. You don't need to have read the book or know the story of Les Miserabes as the writer gives you loads of background to the book - would definitely recommend.

Excellent. Lent has been helped by the study of this wonderful story. Love is at the heart of this
Story. The lack of and the presence. Hence our Easter message of a Christ's love for a world
So lacking in love.

Great lent study course. Linked with dvd made Home Group more intetesting. Some problems at times queing up scenes as did not know the film well enough. Would suggest future users watch film scenes several times to familiarise yourself with the plot.
