CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY ON DISABILITIES

Lawrence Chipawo

Abstract


This paper on Christian Theology on Disability is zeroing on three important areas that affect people with disabilities (PWD). In the first place, it digs the emerging field of theology in line with disability studies, starting with an introduction to disability studies to reflection on what significance disability perspective may have on current theology. Then, it explores ways in which religious traditions have either engaged or failed to engage philosophies of disability and impairment. Finally, concepts that touch on normalcy or human healthy are explored alongside advocacy and access issues related to religious practices such as preaching, religious education and biblical interpretation.
