Jean Vanier’s ministry to people with intellectual disabilities has taken him many different places. He founded L’Arche, which has grown into an international network of communities providing an alternative to institutionalization. In Life’s Great Questions, Vanier meditates on the human condition. This book is for anyone questioning the meaning of life.
Vanier describes the beginnings of L’Arche Canada and tells stories from L’Arche. He also includes biographical sketches from the lives of world leaders and famous Christians.
Jean Vanier is wise, and he recognizes the gifts people with developmental disabilities have to offer. At the beginning of this year, Vanier released a short commentary on the Gospel of John that stresses the importance of relationships. Around that same time he won the Templeton Prize.
