CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOK AWARD WINNER!
A pastor and educator explore the theory and reality of truly welcoming the disabled in our church and our theology.
From the gospels it would appear that the disabled have a special claim on Jesus' love and attention. And from the doctrine of the Trinity we learn that God is an inclusive community of love, Yet are these truths reflected in the life of the church? Drawing on scripture, theology, and the personal experience of their daughter's severe disability, the authors explore the theological meaning of disability and the special insights in affords into the mystery of God's Trinitarian being. They call on the church to become a truly inclusive community, marked by a speical welcome and embrace for those whom the wrold identifies as broken, disabled, or somehow defective.
