Editorial Reviews

Review

Few books make one a significantly more sensitive reader of the Bible. Few books on the Bible make one a more sensitive person. Ora Horn Prouser's book does both, with the insight and grace of a scholar, a teacher, and a parent. Prouser's interpretations of Biblical stories and characters draw on what professionals have learned about special needs and challenges and provide new and humanizing perspectives on mostly familiar Biblical stories. Readers will be moved by the book and moved as they never were before by the Bible. They will never read the Bible-or anything else-the same way again.

The book is essential reading for educators, parents, and students of Bible. --Edward L. Greenstein, director of the Institute for Jewish Biblical Interpretation of Bar-Ilan University

There is infinite wisdom and abiding compassion in the Bible when approached with a wise heart. Ora Horn Prouser is that sage­-resilient, loving, courageous. She opens our eyes to the special needs figures of old whom we come to know and love in the Bible, helping us to embrace and to see with clearer vision the special needs children and adults who deserve our respect and our attention today. --Bradley Shavit Artson, author, The Everyday Torah

A well-researched, respectful, fresh perspective on disabilities in Biblical narratives. -- Judith Z. Abrams, author, Judaism and Disability: Portrayals in ­Ancient Texts from the Tanach through the Bavli

I do not know how this might help a parent of a child with special needs, but I thought this book offered a lot of great insights into Biblical characters, such as how Samson had behavioral problems (which seems obvious now, but had never really thought of it before). This book would be excellent in conjunction with a Bible study, or an aid in teaching a Bible study. Other characters covered include Jacob, Hannah, Jonah, Isaac, Esau, Miriam, Joseph, Mephiboshet, and Moses.

Ora offers an exceptional view into understanding special needs of people in the Bible and relating them to people we know in our families who are dealing with the challenges of having special needs.

This was a very thought-provoking book. I recommended it to a friend who has two special needs children.

I give this book 1 star because I do not feel like it accurately portrays what the author believes to us who is raising special needs children. For one, I do not believe that God had Sarah and Abraham wait almost an hundred years for a promised child to be special needs as an example.
