Product description

Review

"Bethany McKinney Fox's book is a joy to read. She uses research, exegesis, multidisciplinary perspectives, and her own experience of living with and listening to people with disabilities to produce a book that honestly and boldly looks straight at the healing stories of Jesus in the Gospels. This is a book for any pastor or lay group, not just those committed to inclusive ministries. Her writing is both clear and engaging while creatively stretching our vision, disrupting some of our assumptions, and deepening our understanding of healing. I cannot imagine preaching or writing about these healing stories without pulling this back off my shelf and reminding myself of what Dr. Fox has to say."--Bill Gaventa, director, Summer Institute on Theology and Disability

"I believe this book will make a difference."--From the foreword by John Swinton

"Reading Bethany McKinney Fox's work is like taking a long, transformative walk, a walk that anyone committed to practicing the gospel will want to take with her--churches and small groups included. On page after page, she demonstrates insight and care in her approach to the testimonies of disabled persons, Western physicians, pastors and theologians, and the New Testament evangelists. Fox carries us along so that we see better than we did before (as we begin to see through her eyes) how our study of Scripture and our patterns of discipleship and ecclesial life can better reflect 'the way of Jesus.'"--Joel B. Green, professor of New Testament interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary

"This is a fascinating and interesting book, very well documented, about healing--which is not just curing but helping a disabled person to fully accept his or her physical and mental impairments and to discover and love the beauty of their inner being. How did Jesus heal and why? And how is a disciple of Jesus called to become a true healer? This opens up the need of every person to be healed from their fear of entering into a real and authentic relationship with people with disabilities. We all need to learn to love and to respect people as they are and to see their beauty sometimes hidden behind their impairments. This book by Bethany McKinney Fox is excellent, filled with deeply Christian insights."--Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche
