Personal and refreshing May 18 2011
By katebeckingham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As my first introduction to both disability theory and theology, I found this book to be both informative and touching. The way that Edmonds was able to draw an otherwise unfamiliar reader into such a loaded topic was extremely effective. By relating directly to his personal experience (his time with the L'Arche community in Lambeth specifically, and also the shorter story of the young women in a wheelchair visiting the museum) I found myself able to connect with his ideas and, ultimately, his message of acceptance. As a non-Christian, I found his religious discussion, although extremely present, to be non-obstructive to the overall themes of the work. Although his discussion on genetics was slightly above my level of understanding, I was able to finish the chapter with a relatively good understanding of the position of genetics and disability. Finally, I found Edmonds's ideals of accepting people with disabilities as and who they are to be relevant and refreshing. It is not up to us to decide what is better for others or how they should be treated nor should we assume that people with disabilities are unhappy or wish to have their already solid and full lives interfered with.
