Disability in the Christian Tradition: A Reader

Brian Reid Brock (Editor), John Swinton (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

For two millennia Christians have thought about what human impairment is and how faith communities and society should respond to people with perceived impairments. However, never before has one volume collected the most significant Christian thinkers' writings on disability.

Brian Brock and John Swinton have answered this need with Disability in the Christian Tradition. This book brings together for the first time the views of renowned Christian leaders throughout history - including Augustine, Aquinas, Julian of Norwich, Luther, Calvin, Hegel, Kierkegaard, van den Bergh, Bonhoeffer, Barth, Vanier, and Hauerwas. Fourteen experts in theology and disability studies guide readers through each era or group of thinkers, offering clear commentary and highlighting important themes.
