Jean Valjean is free after nineteen years in prison. However, his reentry into society will be anything but easy. During his long struggle to succeed as an honest man, his life is shaped by the fates of the impoverished Fantine and her daughter Cosette, the despicable Thenardier, the young student Marius, and the obsessive police inspector Javert. Each character plays an unforgettable part in Hugo’s master work. Victor Hugo's spectacular novel is set in the tempest-tossed nineteenth century Paris. His work explores social justice, human rights, and, most memorably, the power of grace. This edition features Isabel F. Hapgood's translation of Les Miserables, it is complete and unabridged.

About the Author:

David Case is the founder and current president of Live Free Ministries, a ministry dedicated to restoring kingdom power and authority to spiritual leadership. Since the early 1990s, David Case has held retreats for both pastors and lay persons, helping them break through bondages and pointing them toward fulfilling the call of God on their lives. Having pastored the same church for eighteen years, Pastor Case gives other pastors the tools they need to implement the lifegiver model into a whole-church setting. Case also co-hosts a radio program and ministers internationally. It is David Case's heart to blend "the supernatural of the spiritual realm" with a very solid application into the natural realm.

Victor Hugo (1807-1885)was a novelist, poet and dramatist, and the most important of the French Romantic writers. He began to write at a very young age and wrote over fifty novels and plays; including Les Miserables and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Review:

"Hugo's genius was for the creation of simple and recognizable myth. The huge success of "Les Miserables "as a didactic work on behalf of the poor and oppressed is due to his poetic and myth-enlarged view of human nature." V. S. Pritchett

"It was Tolstoy who vindicated [Hugo's] early ambition by judging "Les Miserables "one of the world's great novels, if not the greatest [His] ability to present the extremes of experience 'as they are' is, in the end, Hugo's great gift." From the Introduction by Peter Washington"
