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.
Bob Molsberry is senior pastor of United Church of Christ-Congregational in Grinnell, Iowa. He is the author of many published articles, both before and after becoming disabled, in local and national media. The writing of Blindsided by Grace was supported by a grant from the Lilly Endowment's National Clergy Renewal Program.
