Publisher's Summary

Much of the church has forgotten that we worship a disabled God whose wounds survived resurrection, says Amy Kenny. It is time for the church to start treating disabled people as full members of the body of Christ who have much more to offer than a miraculous cure narrative and to learn from their embodied experiences.

Written by a disabled Christian, this book shows that the church is missing out on the prophetic witness and blessing of disability. Kenny reflects on her experiences inside the church to expose unintentional ableism and cast a new vision for Christian communities to engage disability justice. She shows that until we cultivate church spaces where people with disabilities can fully belong, flourish, and lead, we are not valuing the diverse members of the body of Christ.

Offering a unique blend of personal storytelling, fresh and compelling writing, biblical exegesis, and practical application, this book invites listeners to participate in disability justice and create a more inclusive community in church and parachurch spaces. Engaging content such as reflection questions and top-ten lists are included.

A worthwhile read

This is a topic that needs to be discussed more and I’m grateful that this work exists and specifically that it was written by a disabled person. My main issue with the book is that it feels a bit repetitive at times, specifically with the charts and re-mentioning of references, but that does also help reinforce the information. Overall a solid option.

Every human needs to read this book

I teach students with intellectual disabilities and this book really helped examine my own ablism. I am a better teacher (and human) as a result of reading this book.
