Les Miserables: The Theology of Valjean vs. Javert

My favorite Broadway musical has been Les Miserables since as far back as I can remember.  Last night I got to see the full length feature film version starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfriend, etc.  It was an incredible film from the opening scene in the prison camp to the very last line, “to love another person is to see the face of God.”

I really enjoyed this article my friend Rich sent me that discusses the perspectives on theology according to the film’s two main characters, Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert:
