Description: Anne-Sophie Constant's literary biography paints a rare portrait of this extraordinary man, Jean Vanier and the events and influences that shaped his destiny. She captures the essence of Jean Vanierís message to stand up for the dignity of every person.

Itís a crazy story, or at least out of the ordinary. In August 1964 a thirty-six-year-old Canadian from a famous family takes up residence in the village of Trosly, France with two mentally disabled men he has removed from a care home.

The house, Vanier calls LíArche the Ark has no water or electricity. His has no plan but is convinced he has to do it. His example is contagious; within months the community has grown to over fifty people and today there are one hundred and fifty LíArche communities on five continents.
