For two millennia Christians have thought about what human impairment is and how faith communities and society should respond to people with perceived impairments. However, Disability and the Christian Tradition is the first collection of writings that deal exclusively with this important question.
Brian Brock and John Swinton's work brings together for the first time the views of renowned Christian leaders throughout history--including:
Julian of Norwich
van den Bergh
Fourteen experts in theology and disability studies guide readers through each era or group of thinkers, offering clear commentary and highlighting important themes.
