Disability in Mission - The Church's Hidden Treasure

Author(s): David Deuel (Editor); Nathan John (Editor); Joni Eareckson-Tada (Foreword by)


Disability in Mission: The Church’s Hidden Treasure outlines a radical change in approaches to missiology, missions, and praxis for the twenty-first-century global cultural context. It explores a pattern whereby God works powerfully in missions through disability and not in spite of it. No matter what our disability or vulnerability may be, God can use us; and if the body of Christ is supportive, people with disability can be effective agents of transformation in the mission field. Via a number of case studies of people with disabilities who are involved in missions, and with robust biblical and missiological justification, this book examines the role of those with disability in missions.

Product Information

“This book contains a vital message that needs to be heard and heeded, not just in cross-cultural mission agencies, but by the whole Christian community. Its message certainly contains a powerful challenge, but it is above all an inspiring encouragement. What an amazing God we worship, who became weak for us in Christ and wants to use us—not in spite of our weaknesses but through them! – Vaughan Roberts
