about

It is estimated that there are 43 million Americans with one or more physical or mental disabilities. Over the past several decades, the disability movement has grown in strength and sophistication, attaining maturity with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. This landmark civil rights legislation ushered in a new era for people with disabilities.Many religious people, however well meaning, are unfamiliar with the language and philosophy of the disability movement. They unintentionally give offense by language and actions that reflect a by-gone era. This book aims to do two things: to acquaint church and synagogue leaders with the history and philosophy of the disability movement and to provide resources from scripture and theology for thinking and preaching about disability in a new way.

Editorial Reviews

"Copious Hosting smartly explores disability and theology in wonderfully contemporary terms. Jennie Weiss Block confesses not to speak for people with disabilities, acknowledging that she herself is not disabled; yet this thoroughly researched study masterfully examines the breadth and depth of the diverse disability community, relates this body of knowledge to sometimes conservative theological tenets, and provides an agenda for change and a rationale to support it."--John D. Kemp, attorney and nationally acclaimed keynote speaker on disability issues
