In A Healing Homiletic: Preaching and Disability, Kathy Black offers a unique and effective approach for preaching about disabilities. By going to the heart of the gospel and drawing on the healing narratives or miracle stories, Black shows how preaching affects the inclusion or exclusion of forty-three million persons with disabilities from our faith communities. A Healing Homiletic provides a new method of preaching about healing, based on Scripture, for understanding the needs of the disability community.
(2001) Kathy Black is Professor of Homiletics & Liturgics, the School of Theology at Claremont, and an ordained United Methodist minister. She has extensive experience in various fields of disability: she worked as chaplain at Gallaudet University (an outstanding college for the hearing impaired); she pastored two churches for deaf persons; and she taught Deaf Ministry classes and Ministry With Persons With Disabilities at Wesley Theological Seminary, Pacific School of Religion, and the School of Theology at Claremont.
