Item Description...
PUBContinuum)A major new work in a relatively unexplored area of inquiry. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was a landmark piece of legislation, but churches are still wrestling with the theological and practical implications of empowering those with physical and mental difficulties. Solid advice. 176 pages, softcover.

Publishers Description
It is estimated that there are 43 million Americans with one or more physical or mental disabilities. Over the past several decades, the disability movement has grown in strength and sophistication, attaining maturity with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. This landmark civil rights legislation ushered in a new era for people with disabilities.Many religious people, however well meaning, are unfamiliar with the language and philosophy of the disability movement. They unintentionally give offense by language and actions that reflect a by-gone era. This book aims to do two things: to acquaint church and synagogue leaders with the history and philosophy of the disability movement and to provide resources from scripture and theology for thinking and preaching about disability in a new way.>

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good Beginner's Guide to Disability Awareness  Sep 18, 2002
My original intent in buying a couple of copies of the book was to address the architectural aspect of disabilities within the Church. I was pleased, delighted and enlightened by what I learned about my own blindness and insensivity towards the Disability movement in general.

Jennie Block's sensitivity and ability to both "tell a good story' as well as teach awareness is a good beginning in this area. Her vision is bold of what the Church, and Society could be, if others shared this vision and awareness.

She offers a "relational Christology" and uses the stories of healing and miracles in the Bible to good advantage. She even confronts traditional Christian concepts about "healing" today and in past years.

As a first step, this is a wonderful, and accessible read. For someone investigating the field of interest, she will open your eyes to other adjacent areas. She gives a good history of the Disability Movement, and her analysis of liberation theology is comprehendable and used to good effect.

Personally, she made me aware of areas within myself that need work and for that I'm grateful.

Enlightening  Jul 3, 2002
My reading of this excellent book broadened my limited vision of people with disabilities significantly. I am in the process of launching a capital campaign in our parish for a "Face Lift" of the interior of our parish church built in the mid-1930s. Thanks to this text I am making changes to the Sanctuary for access by wheel chairs. The church is already accessible. I am most grateful for the education is received by reading Copious Hosting.
Best Book on DIsabilites and Religion  Mar 29, 2002
This book provides a concise history of the care and treatment of individuals with disabilities. The author offers a logical and workable philosophy for the Church to address the unique and mundane needs of individuals with disabilities.

The book is an invaluable reference to readers with an interest in the disabilities movement. THe book is also of great value to members of the religious community seeking philosopical and practical observations relating to disabilities.

The book is extremely well written. The author shows humor and charm while tackling a very serious subject.
