I found that out at small group* on Sunday when I forgot my Bible and needed to download one.

I guess that kind of makes sense. Story of sin, redemption, grace, legalism, individualism, Pharisaical interpretation of the law. I’ve never read Victor Hugo’s classic, but I’m assuming the basics of the musical are in the text somewhere. Maybe for some people, divine truth would be easier to find in Les Miserables than the Bible!

*for anyone not fluent in church lingo, “small group” is basically code for “Bible Study at someone’s house.”
