“…, in conversation with biblical texts, heighten the church's understanding and lead to a liberating theology for persons with cognitive challenges? ”
Few books have been written about theology and disability, and none that I'm aware of have been written by a brain injury survivor. I intend to weave my personal experience of brain injury with biblical texts on wilderness, healing, and vulnerability. I hope that my book will both encourage survivors to recognize that there is a place for them in the church, and educate pastors and laypeople about the gifts and struggles of those of us with cognitive challenges. I also intend to organize an educational forum, a public space where survivors can tell their stories and listeners can increase their understanding of brain injury.
