Item description for Theology and Down Syndrome: Reimagining Disability in Late Modernity by Amos Yong...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theology and Down Syndrome: Reimagining Disability in Late Modernity?

Excellent, comprehensive book  Jul 23, 2008
This is an amazing book..extremely thought-provoking. As a parent to a child with Down syndrome and a Christian, it was wonderful to be able to read such a comprehensive take on the subject. One warning to potential readers, the book is very scholarly and academic. I have to admit I didn't always necessarily understand everything being said as the language is much more geared toward theologians, but certainly the gist of the book was clear and I constantly found myself inspired to think of certain aspects of Christianity as it relates to those with disabilities in a different way. Not a quick read, but well worth the time invested.
finally!  Jan 10, 2008
i am filled with gratitude nearly each time i read another section of this book. i'm thankful that mr. yong has taken on such a work and really don't have words for how this book will help me as a parent and as a follower of jesus.
