Abstract:

From the gospels it would appear that the disabled have a special claim on Jesus' love and attention. And from the doctrine of the Trinity we learn that God is an inclusive community of love. Yet are these truths reflected in the life of the church? Drawing on scripture, theology, and the personal experience of their daughter's severe disability, the authors explore the theological meaning of disability and the special insights it affords into the mystery of God's Trinitarian being. They call on the church to become a truly inclusive community, marked by a special welcome and embrace for those whom the world identifies as broken, disabled, or somehow defective. -- Publisher.
