VANIER. Benjamin S. Wall. Cascade Books, 2016. 122 + xxii pages.
In this short book, Benjamin Wall unpacks major theological themes in the writings of Jean Vanier, the founder of L’Arche. L’Arche (French for The Ark, named after Noah’s Ark) is perhaps the most well-known international federation of communities where people with and without disabilities live together, embodying a counter-cultural witness of mutual dependence, friendship, and vulnerable community.
