About the Author

Jean Vanier is a philosopher, theologian, and man of letters with great heart and compassion. He was awarded the Templeton Prize in 2015. Past recipients include Archbishop Desmond Tutu and H.H. the Dalai Lama. The first L'Arche Community was started in 1964 in Trosly-Breuil, a village in the north of Paris when Vanier invited two people with intellectual disabilities to live with him in a small house. This house he named L'Arche, French for "The Ark," a name then adopted by all communities around the world that have been founded on these principles. Today, L'Arche is made up of 151 communities spread over five continents.


"We Need Each Other is a treasure. . . . Though these lectures were first delivered ten years ago, and halfway around the world, they couldn't be timelier. They are timely because they are timeless."
--John Pattison, Englewood Review of Books
"We all want to be noticed and loved by those who are famous, beautiful, and admired. To be loved by them gives us a good feeling. But to be loved by the poor, by those with disabilities, by those who have no place with the famous, the beautiful, and the admired, is the real place where unconditional love and healing will find us. How do we come to that practically in our lives? In this book, Jean Vanier gives us both a vision and a map. This is vintage Vanier." -Ronald Rolheiser, author of The Holy Longing and Bruised and Wounded

"Jean Vanier is a living saint." -James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
