One of the most frequently asked questions that people ask me today is, “How can you, as one who is not directly affected by disability, be so passionate about those who are?” My response is simple: “Jesus was neither mentally nor physically disabled. Yet the Gospels declare that he demonstrated compassion upon people who were disabled. Jesus did not ignore them; he acknowledged their presence. And he took time to heal them so that the glory of God could be seen in the miracle.”I wrote this book to inform the Christian church that, as followers of Christ, we are called to extend his authentic love to all of humanity so that glory of God can be revealed through us. Every Sunday morning, people who are disabled wonder whether or not it is worth the effort for them to attend church and suffer exclusion and shame. This book provides Christians with a better understanding of how to welcome, include, embrace, and value those who are disabled—those who possess the audacity to be in our midst.
