Item Description...
Overview
"From the Publsher:" THE DISABLED GOD by Nancy L. Eiesland Integrating intellectual with personal, political and spiritual, Eiesland defines a liberatory theology for the disabled.

Publishers Description
Draws on themes of the disability-rights movement to identify people with disabilities as members of a socially disadvantaged minority group rather than as individuals who need to adjust. Highlights the hidden history of people with disabilities in church and society. Proclaiming the emancipatory presence of the disabled God, the author maintains the vital importance of the relationship between Christology and social change. Eiesland contends that in the Eucharist, Christians encounter the disabled God and may participate in new imaginations of wholeness and new embodiments of justice.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Awesome and Life Changing  Apr 27, 2003
I was assigned to read this text for a course. It was one of the most life changing reads of my entire life. I have recommended the book to family and friends and I will continue to do so.

It was a liberating read which caused me to evaluate my own thoughts towards those that are able bodied and those that are not. My concept of what is whole and what is not has also been affected. And although I do not live with a handicap the book gave me insight that I could have never imagined.

Thank you Nancy Eisland for a marvelous work.
