Description "This edited collection of essays critically examines how diverse religions of the world represent, understand, theologize, theorize and respond to disability and/or chronic illness. Contributors employ a wide variety of methodological approaches including ethnography, historical, cultural, or textual analysis, personal narrative, and theological/philosophical investigation. "-- "The role that disability and religion play in human experience is vast, pervasive, and beyond simplification. This edited collection critically examines how Judaism, Christianity and Islam represent and respond to disability in their respective texts, traditions, and in contemporary society. Contributors incorporate literature and theoretical analysis from the field of disability studies resulting in an inter-religious and cross-cultural effort to cultivate new ways to link religion and disability. The book is appealing to a broad readership including members of the disabled community, scholars and students from multiple academic and professional disciplines, and religious practitioners from Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions"--
