Patricia Chadwick4 Stars Out Of 5May 25, 2008Patricia ChadwickHaving a child with a disability myself, this book really hit home. While the authors son had more severe handicaps than what my son had to deal with, I could relate to the deep love that Reynolds has for his son and the discrimination that is experienced, even in the church.Living with a child with a disability changes you. It makes you more compassionate towards others and less quick to judge. The author does a great job in arguing why the church should be the hands and feet of Jesus and have compassion on the "unlovely" and reach out the hand of fellowship to them.I will be honest, this book is not a quick read. It is heavily footnote and the reader knows after the first few pages that it is written by a scholarly man. With that said, I still feel it is worth the read. You won't be disappointed and will be surprised at how much you learn.
