"On June 15, 2020, during a global pandemic, a significant funding source for theological studies in the West announced their strategic priorities. The top three were 'Exceptional Cognitive Talent and Genius,' 'Genetics,' and 'Individual Freedom and Free Markets.' Fascination with and focus on concepts like 'genius' and 'individual freedom' are part of Western, mainstream culture. Brian Brock here offers a different conversation, bringing together the words of people who have written courageously about their own lives lived with disability and his own careful exegesis and practiced, experienced thinking about discipleship and real people with real bodies. He gently turns attention away from a well-funded, fearful, social-Darwinian view of human existence, toward lives lived together in fragile solidarity and hope. This is practical and political theology written not to impress geniuses but to invite the rest of us to see one another as awkwardly beheld and tenaciously beloved."
