Disability in Mission

David Deuel & Nathan John

This book offers us a bigger vision for mission in the life of the church. It wonderfully demonstrates how the presence and involvement of disabled people as participants, leaders and missionaries are creatively contributing to the advance of God’s kingdom around the world. It shines a light on expectations more often shaped by the world’s view of success rather than an understanding of the ways of God who ‘chose the foolish things of this world to shame the wise.’

Each chapter reveals moving stories of people experiencing a life of disability, who in God’s hands display His glory. This book challenges thinking and assumptions, but also inspires us to deepen our commitment to those ‘who seem to be weaker’, enabling us together to exhibit God’s grace and power and life in all its fullness.
