Editorial Reviews

Review

These intriguing stories about the church reaching out to the disabled and the disabled reaching back opened my eyed to a world of compassionate ministry that most of us have overlooked, This book is for those who are serious about doing something about those whom Jesus deeply cares for. I wish I had read it earlier in my ministry. (Jim Henry, Pastor Emeritus, First Baptist Church, Orlando, Florida and former president, Southern Baptist Convention)

This is a remarkable book, as practical as it is inspirational! As a local church pastor, I need to learn from the examples of other faith communities and the personal stories of inclusion. Thank you for touching my ministry and heart with a guide book on real love in action! (Joel C. Hunter, Senior Pastor, Northland, A Church Distributed)

About the Author

Mark I. Pinsky is the author of several popular, critically acclaimed books, including The Gospel According to The Simpsons and A Jew Among Evangelicals, and he was religion reporter for the Orlando Sentinel from 1995 to 2008. Columns by Pinsky on faith, disability, and inclusion have been featured in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, and was the subject of a feature article in the Harvard Divinity Bulletin.

More About the Author

Longtime religion writer Mark I. Pinsky (b. 1947)was a free lance writer before working for 25 years for the Los Angeles Times and Orlando Sentinel. His primary specialties are religion, politics (Sun Belt evangelicals) and popular culture (The Simpsons, Disney, South Park, etc.) "You can find God in the funniest places -- and where you least expect."
Since leaving the Sentinel in 2008, Pinsky has concentrated on books, free lance writing (USA Today, Harvard Divinity Bulletin, etc.), college lectures around the country, and adjunct teaching at the University of Central Florida. He has held numerous fellowships, including Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School, University of Cambridge (Templeton) and Duke University Divinity School.
For the moment, he is trying to figure out how to make his first three books available online(he owns the electronic rights), and to find a publisher for his latest nonfiction book, "Unfinished Business: The True Story of an Appalachian Cold Case Murder." His literary agent is Gail Hochman, of Brandt & Hochman. This book represents a return for Pinsky, who covered numerous capital murder cases, including serial killer Ted Bundy and Green Beret Capt. Jeffrey MacDonald.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book Amazing Gifts. . . is a look at what faith communities around the country are doing to include those with disabilities. The forward by Ginny Thornburgh and the stories that follow set a new standard for what those of us with disabilities should expect as we navigate in the world. And this expectation should be extended beyond faith communities to all organizations, public and private. This book takes us from the basic expectations of the Americans with Disabilities Act to the ideal of inclusion.
