Paperback |96 pp |178 x 110 mm
eBook |96 pp
The world’s leading Christian thinkers explain some of the principal tenets of their theological beliefs.
‘Why does someone find a great peace when I simply hold their hand?’ ‘Would Jesus really reject someone from heaven because he wasn’t able to proclaim his name?’ ‘What does it mean to know God without words?’
John Swinton’s early years working as a nurse among people with intellectual disabilities presented him with profound questions that sowed the seeds for his future life as one of the most important figures in the development of disability theology and the relationship between spirituality and health.
Here, he explores the nature of faithfulness and discipleship in relation to disability and mental health, and asks exactly what kind of community the Church should be, in both theory and in practice.
