Event description

Description

Long a neglected field of theological inquiry, the intersection of disability and faith has in recent years become the ground of fruitful research and writing. From yearly institutes on theology and disability to a growing number of books on the topic, this module explores at a practical and interactive level some of the key themes and insights of influential theologians and authors. You will leave this day with a renewed appreciation for theology of the human condition and an awareness of directions for future investigation.
