Why Jean Vanier’s Becoming Human is an important read to Juno Awards 2018 nominee Daniel Taylor

CBC

Daniel Taylor chose Becoming Human by Jean Vanier as a book he enjoyed reading. “In this profound work, Jean Vanier offers his deeply human vision for creating a community that honours the importance of equality and honours the principle of acting with a common good. It questions our way of being and asks each of us to consider if we are pushing away those that we view as being mentally or physically weak instead of embracing them. Vanier reveals that our collective failure has resulted in levels of inequality that take away the possibility of enjoying a life of dignity.”
