by Jean Vanier

Jean Vanier has changed our understanding of people with mental and physical challenges. Through l'Arche, and later Faith and Light, which are now international organizations, Vanier showed how the world can be transformed when we open our hearts to the experiences of people who have known life only at the margins.

In this selection of excerpts from the works of Jean vanier, editor Carolyn Whitney-Brown explores five decades of inspiring words and actions. Vanier sees the challenge as the need to "change the world, with love, one heart at a time." The result is a compendium of essential and deeply moving readings that reveal the powerful insights, the gentle wisdom and the profound spiritual significance of a truly great Canadian: Jean Vanier.
