Présentation de l'éditeur

Gold Medallion Award-winner Bob Welch crafts 52 nuggets of Bible-based wisdom from one of the most popular novels, musicals, and films of all time: Les Misérables.

In 52 Little Lessons from Les Misérables, Bob Welch walks readers through Hugo’s masterpiece, extracting dozens of uniquely spiritual reflections from this enduring portrait of poverty, social injustice, mercy, and redemption. Welch reminds us that Jean Valjean’s life provides the truest example of why real love is found in the grittiest places, and that hearts are made whole beneath the crush of mercy. Most important, though, Welch keeps returning to the intersections of faith and reality throughout Hugo’s writing—those places where mercy becomes an inroad to the heart, and where love is only truly received when it is given without condition.

Discover again why life’s purpose is found not in attending to personal needs and desires, but in responding to the hearts of others.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Valuable Lessons in 52 Delightful Bits 23 octobre 2014
Par Dr Conrade Yap - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The musical has been seen by more than 65 million people in over 42 countries. Written by Victor Hugo in 1862, it continues to fascinate and enthrall audiences the world over. In 2012, it even won a Golden Globe award for best picture. The question, is there something more than simply a show? Are there important lessons to learn from as far as lay people are concerned? Are the lessons in the 19th Century story still relevant for today? Welch gives an emphatic YES! Fifty Two of them.

For Les Miserables is not simply a brilliant play that entertains. It is also a story that is big on spiritual themes, life struggles, and according to author, speaker, and adjunct professor of journalism at Eugene's University of Oregon, it contains "52 little lessons" that we can all learn from. What makes the writing of this book interesting and challenging is to be able to select only 52 out of a very complex tale of betrayal, mystery, joy, forgiveness, despondency, suffering, political and social reforms, and many others. For us as readers, we can enjoy the fruits of the author's labour, with the many stories of the characters, the places, the plots, the history and many other interesting settings. Most of the lessons are spiritually inclined because the author feels that the novel is spiritual in nature.

Readers will notice several significant themes. Right from the start, an important key to understanding the story is to know the background and contexts. Things happen with a reason. We learn about the generosity and humility of bishop Myriel, an upright man who gives up personal comfort for the benefit of others, defends the poor, and loves serving people. His quiet and servant lifestyle contrasts with those who are famous, pompous, and richly influential who hardly lifted a finger to help the vulnerable. Jean Valjean's patient knocking on doors to ask for help is another example of how Matthew 7:7-8 can be practiced. We learn about love that is active, not passive. Other spiritual lessons include:

- Learning to see others as God sees people
- How crisis tests our character and how grace can change us
- The irony of strengths becoming weaknesses
- That children need to be allowed to be children. Don't impose adult like expectations on them.
- What good is faith if it does not touch others?
- Humility and humanity
- ...

Just looking at the lessons drawn from the musical, I believe that there are more than 52 lessons in this really intriguing novel. I appreciate the concise summaries in each chapter and the "list of characters" to help jiggle our memories about the novel and play. Perhaps, one of the best ways to appreciate Bob Welch's book is to watch Les Miserables again. Then read the book and see the characters and the life lessons come alive in more ways than one.

Rating: 4.5 stars of 5.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I've loved Les Misérables since I first read it in high ... 15 octobre 2014
Par Julius L McCarter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I've loved Les Misérables since I first read it in high school. Hugo's vivid portrayal of Jean Valjean's growth into kindness is perhaps one of the greatest in all literature. Hugo has given us a classic that stood the tests of time.

And while I love the book, my wife is drawn to the play, and more recently the 2012 movie. But whether it's the book, the play or the movie, Les Misérables captivates hearts and minds for a reason.

So I was doubly excited to read Bob Welch's 52 Little Lessons from Les Misérables. Welch's little book supplements that classic in so many ways. And he offers us a little gem that will grace bookshelves.

Unlike Hugo's writing, Welch offers brief devotionals on the story that can be read in a single sitting -- I know I did. But it also works as a devotional that has weekly readings for a full year. Either way, these short chapters are filled with a spiritual wisdom that Christans need to hear. That wisdom will have readers digging deeper into Hugo's writing, mining practical ideas that often go unnoticed. And there are questions at the end that make this book an excellent resource for Sunday School classes and small discipleship groups.

Hugo's Les Misérables is a theological classic in its own right. And now Walch's book will open it up to new generations.

But, lector caveat -- reader, beware: Welch's little book will have you reaching for the soundtrack and watching your DVD copies and even (gasp!) rereading Hugo's own words. Because Welch is so great a guide that it won't do just to take the little tours. That's the sign of a spiritual classic in its own right.

I couldn't recommend 52 Little Lessons from Les Misérables more highly.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A mixed bag 2 juin 2015
Par Anastasia Vitsky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book is a mixed bag for me. I want to love it, and everything I usually rate would mean I love it. The introduction is well done, Bob Welch does a great job explaining his purpose and methodology, and the premise is a winner. I spent days in the basement of my childhood home, devouring a dusty library copy of the unabridged Les Misérables. (The unabridged version is worth the read, and it's not the literary snob in me saying this. With the abridged, we get the familiar story and action most people have heard or seen in the musical and movies. With the unabridged, we get the whole setup for why and how.)

The life lessons from a narrative point in Les Misérables are well-chosen, if a bit cliched, and the examples from Welch's real life give a folksy, down-to-earth application. As I said, I should love this book...but I don't. Perhaps the error was mine in thinking a "52 Life Lessons" title would mean more than short and superficial messages. However, the richly detailed and nuanced introduction left me disappointed when the following chapters gave only an oversimplified message.

Perhaps this is what the target audience wants. For someone wanting short, to-the-point, and easy-to-understand chapters that can be read in any order, this could be a useful devotional. I did enjoy some of the chapters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 “Blessed are the Poor in Spirit” 22 avril 2015
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

These real such simple lessons. Short reads to ponder for our own life. For example: Lesson 6: “Blessed are the Poor in Spirit”; Lesson 26: “The Past Can Be a Springboard to the Future” and Lesson 40: “Self-Pity Morphs Into Selfishness” and one of my favorites, Lesson 38: Perspective Changes Everything. These are just a small sample of the lessons within this book. Certainly we all have much to learn as we grow in Christ. :-)

Typically lessons begins with a short quote from the original story and then continues discussing a specific event or scene, then moving on to “real life” examples as well as scriptural references Each lesson concludes with a thought provoking question, something that helps to show its application to our own life. They really encourage you to stop and take inventory, and reflect before moving forward.

A good example of this is seen in the character of Valjean; his story and even the characters of those like the Bishop and Enjolras. Fantine and Cosette. There’s so much life within the pages of this book all full of lessons and ways we can grow ourselves in our own lives. I love the depth in the one simple line: “even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.” Doesn’t that take on a greater meaning when you really stop to consider it?

Such a sweet, simple, valuable read. I do believe this would be wonderful to use as a devotional even. I plan in the near future to space this out, one lesson to ponder over several days. To really seek His word and way in those pages; there is a greater depth that I do not want to miss! Certainly this one is overflowing with the most precious of lessons if we only take the time to really allow the words to sit, just as our tea bag steeps in the cup. I definitely will be reading this one again, as a steeping teabag, that I may gain a greater and stronger understanding from every word.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 life lessons in five minutes or less 20 février 2015
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

52 Little Lessons from Les Miserables by Bob Welch is about life lessons one is able to find in Victor Hugo’s massive piece of classic French literature. Lesson 6: “Blessed are the Poor in Spirit”; Lesson 26: “The Past Can Be a Springboard to the Future” and Lesson 40: “Self-Pity Morphs Into Selfishness” are just a small sampling of the lessons touched on in this book.
Generally each lesson begins with a short quote from the original. It then continues talking about a particular scene, moves on into a “real life” example and scriptural reference, and concludes with a thought provoking question or final thought.
There are several things I really liked about this book. One, the length of the chapters (most are only a few pages) make it totally manageable to pick up and read for a few minutes and set down. Although, to be noted: even though you *could* blow through the chapters one after the other, the homily-like lessons have so much excellent thought-provoking content that’s it well worth it to stop and reflect before moving on.

The other thing was the “real life” stories and parallels that are drawn continuously throughout the book. The makes the lessons so much more relatable to our own lives today and really underscores the lessons from the original

When I first picked up the book I hadn’t begun to read the original, but this book gave me the push and excitement I needed to get going on that. It also helped to provide a framework for me to hang the story on.
