Summary
  • Explores the role of human disability in the service of God and examines how the participation of people with disabilities relate to the scriptures that speak of sin, disability, and healing. Challenges the current practices within the churches, encourages people with disabilities to press for full inclusion, suggests that congregations should re-envision their actual practices in communal life and worship, and presents a selection entitled "Disabling the Lie." Includes topic and name indices.
