Product Description

Confronting the stereotypes surrounding the experience of having a disability, Molsberry compares his post-trauma adjustment to an immersion in an alien culture. Noting that the challenges are not just physical or mental, he discusses cultural, political, and theological factors, as well as medical advances, with humor and honesty. 115 pages, softcover from Augsburg.

Publisher's Description

An active pastor, husband, father, and triathlete, Robert F. Molsberry was left paraplegic following a near fatal hit and run accident in 1997. After a long period of recovery and rehabilitation, he has returned to an active life including family, ministry, and athletics. The book reflects on his experience of disability not as a medical condition in search of a cure, nor as a tragedy to be pitied, but as a cross-cultural adventure similar to learning to live in a foreign country. Molsberry also offers biblical and theological reflection that confronts the Bible's ancient worldview regarding disability rather than deserved punishment or opportunity for miraculous cure, he explores biblical texts that see disability as an occasion for radical hospitality and inclusion.
