Theology and Down Syndrome: Reimagining Disability in Late Modernity
Baylor University Press, Nov 15, 2020 - Church work with people with disabilities - 462 pages
While the struggle for disability rights has transformed secular ethics and public policy, traditional Christian teaching has been slow to account for disability in its theological imagination. Amos Yong crafts both a theology of disability and a theology informed by disability. The result is a Christian theology that not only connects with our present social, medical, and scientific understanding of disability but also one that empowers a set of best practices appropriate to our late modern context.
