Product Description

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:
  • Augustine
  • Aquinas
  • Julian of Norwich
  • Luther
  • Calvin
  • Hegel
  • Kierkegaard
  • van den Bergh
  • Bonhoeffer
  • Barth
  • Vanier
  • Hauerwas
Fourteen experts in theology and disability studies guide readers through each era or group of thinkers, offering clear commentary and highlighting important themes.

A book that is indispensable for all those who reflect upon the value of people with a disability and their place in the church. It gives significant extracts of eminent theologians and people committed in the church over the ages on this subject.
-Jean Vanier
founder of L'Arche

From the Cappadocian Fathers and Augustine, to Vanier and Hauerwas, by way of Aquinas and Julian of Norwich, Luther and Calvin, Bonhoeffer and Barth--not to mention other unexpected bypaths--this remarkably comprehensive reader is a highly significant contribution to the burgeoning field of theological reflection on disability.
