"In 1964 Jean Vanier, a philosopher and former naval officer, moved into a dilapidated house in France with two companions and started the first L'Arche community. In time this grew into an international network of communities in which people with intellectual disabilities and those who assist them share their lives together. Though Vanier's roots are Roman Catholic, the movement is deeply ecumenical and interfaith, and his message of compassion, community, and the dignity of the human person, has struck a universal chord. Pope John Paul II called him "a great spokesman for the culture of solidarity and the civilization of love.'" This collection, published to mark Vanter's 80th birthday, contains his essential writings."--BOOK JACKET.
