Brian Brock and John Swinton's Disability in the Christian Tradition brings together for the first time key writings on disability by thinkers from all periods of Christian history-including Augustine, Aquinas, Julian of Norwich, Luther, Calvin, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Bonhoeffer, Barth, Hauerwas, and more. Fourteen contemporary experts in theology and disability studies guide readers through each era or group of thinkers, offering lucid commentary and highlighting important themes. Book jacket.
Brian Brock is lecturer in moral and practical theology at the University of Aberdeen. John Swinton is professor of practical theology and pastoral care at the University of Aberdeen.
