Les Misérables: Focus on the Family Audio Drama

I think I have become addicted to this radio theatre. This is my second drama to review. I put it in on a trip home from my parents house and before I knew it, I was home. It was entertaining and engaging that I lost myself in the story. The story was recorded by talented actors in the city of London. 

The story of redemption and laying ones life down for another person is such a poignant tale for our day in time. As our culture tells us to meet our own needs and blatantly encourages our selfishness, we see this timely reminder to put others ahead of ourselves. 

It is easy to embrace Jean Valjean after he has been changed from an embittered convict by one single act of kindness. It begs us to question what we could do to change the course of the life of someone around us. How can we be kind and welcoming to someone who is less than desirable? What could we sacrifice today?

Everyone I know is flocking to see the movie right now. Take a look at this as well. It would be an excellent homeschool or family resource to discuss redemption. I have richly enjoyed it. I hope you do as well.

This 3 cd set was graciously provided by Tyndale Publishers for review.
