Jean Vanier has just been honored as the 2015 recipient of the prestigious Templeton Prize, which is awarded annually to someone who “has made an exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension, whether through insight, discovery, or practical works.”

Vanier is a Canadian Catholic philosopher and social innovator, founder of the L'Arche movement, comprising communities all over the world for people with mental disabilities.

I would like to see some of Jean Vanier's works in Logos or Vyrso. Here's a list of all his works I can find in English. Complicating matters is the fact that he's published with so many publishers, but perhaps you could start with a collection of his books with Paulist Press.

Becoming Human (Paulist Press, 2014)

From Brokenness to Community (Paulist Press, 2014)

Community and Growth (Paulist Press, 1989)

Befriending the Stranger (Paulist Press, 2014)

Seeing beyond Depression (Paulist Press, 2013)

Drawn into the Mystery of Jesus through the Gospel of John (Paulist Press, 2015)

An Ark for the Poor (Novalis, 2012)

Finding Peace (House of Anansi Press, 2003)

The Scandal of Service: Jesus Washes Our Feet (Continuum, 1998)

Signs of the Times: Seven Paths of Hope for a Troubled World (Darton, Longman & Todd, 2013)

Our Life Together: A Memoir in Letters (Darton, Longman & Todd, 2008)

Happiness: A Guide to a Good Life, Aristotle for the New Century (Arcade, 2002)

Jean Vanier: Essential Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters) (Orbis Books, 2008)

Yes, Henri Nouwen too, but there are already threads listing all or most of his works or boosting him as an important author to get in Logos. Go put thumbs up there too. This thread is for Vanier.

https://community.logos.com/forums/t/94781.aspx (main thread; with book list)

https://community.logos.com/forums/t/288.aspx 

https://community.logos.com/forums/t/7311.aspx 

https://community.logos.com/forums/t/71907.aspx 

But note that Nouwen has already been added to their list of book candidates (see here), so that's more progress than Vanier. We have no idea whether they've seen let alone taken up the Vanier suggestion. I've emailed requesting him too.

I read his "Drawn into the Mystery of Jesus through the Gospel of John" a few years ago. He has a great understanding of the message of the Gospel and how we are to live this in our day-to-day lives.

It would be really great if Faithlife would consider a Vanier Collection. He was a wise sage whose wisdom was at once chalennging, while warm and comforting.

Voted. Especially timely now, as Vanier just died last month.
