One of the most significant humanitarians of the 20th Century, Jean Vanier's social conscience and vision are matched only by the deeds with which he carried them out. Vanier's life speaks his vision that only by "opening ourselves to outsiders, those we perceive as weak, different, or inferior, [can we] achieve true personal and societal freedom." This book is not only a book of extraordinary ideas from a man who lived them, but a profound call to action.
Acclaimed as a man "who inspires the world," (Maclean's) and a "nation builder" (Globe and Mail), Jean Vanier has made a difference in the lives of countless people. In this provocative book, Vanier shares his profoundly human vision for creating a common good that radically changes our communities, our relationships, and ourselves. He proposes that by opening ourselves to outsiders, those we perceive as weak, different, or inferior, we can achieve true personal and societal freedom. Becoming Human is not only a book of extraordinary ideas, but a revolutionary call to action. The 10th anniversary edition includea a new Introduction by the author.
