Item Description...

The mentally disabled have spiritual needs, just as they have the more obvious physical and emotional needs. And Christians can meet those needs.

When you encounter a person who is mentally disabled--at the mall, in your neighborhood, or at church--what's your response? Do you just keep walking? Author Robert Bittner, who for many years was deeply embarrassed by his own sister's mental handicaps, sympathizes: "We avoid what we do not understand and who without medical training. . . can understand so varied a group of people? They are people with whom it is sometimes difficult to communicate, , , , People who sometimes, if we're honest about it, make us uncomfortable by their uniqueness."

Yet there's a better way, as Bittner and numbers of other Christians have discovered. It's called understanding. Under His Wings recounts the experiences of everyday believers who have sought to understand. Who stepped out of their comfort zones and formed friendships with people who challenged their assumptions, tested their patience, and ultimately enriched their faith.

This book will help you to follow in their footsteps. Combining practical suggestions, powerful testimonies, and a list of organizations and resources, Under His Wings is a valuable guide for all Christians. It will not only help you and your church expand your ministry to this often-neglected minority, but will move you beyond the stigma of mental disability to see people whom God loves deeply.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fills a Void  Aug 3, 2001
Such a huge gap exists in our understanding of the mentally disabled that this book has long been needed. Somehow we've forgotten they are spiritual beings like the rest of us. Robert Bittner writes from his lifelong experience with profound insight and with practical suggestions that are simple to read and respond to. Personally gratifying are his descriptions of his times with our developmentally disabled son and his father. I could wish everyone would open this book and let it open mind and heart.
