Editorial Reviews


These intriguing stories about the church reaching out to the disabled and the disabled reaching back opened my eyes 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)

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.
