Disability in Mission: The Church’s Hidden Treasure outlines a radical change in approaches to missiology, missions, and praxis for the twenty-first-century global cultural context.
It explores a pattern whereby God works powerfully in missions through disability and not in spite of it. No matter what our disability or vulnerability may be, God can use us; and if the body of Christ is supportive, people with disability can be effective agents of transformation in the mission field.
Via a number of case studies of people with disabilities who are involved in missions, and with robust biblical and missiological justification, this book examines the role of those with disability in missions.
It includes a foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada and contributions by Bonnie Baker Armistead, J. M. Paul, Barry Funnell, Paul Lindoewood, Jeff McNair, Natalie Flickner, Justin Reimer, Deanna Richey, Nathan G. John, and Lausanne Catalyst for Disability Concerns David C. Deuel.
