Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author introduces the problem of human disabilities, offers a summary of Amos Yong's thesis, reviews his methodology, summarizes his survey of contemporary discussions about disability, and sketches out his key biblical, theological, and ecclesial contributions to the discussion about God and disability. If he pays attention to what Scripture and people with disabilities can teach him about the profound human and spiritual realities that lie beyond rationalistic definitions of our humanity, too deep to be contained by "normality," he will better understand the God whose Spirit intercedes for him with "groanings too deep for words." This argument is grounded in Yong's particular pneumatological methodology.

Keywords:Amos Yong; biblical theology; church; God; human disabilities; pneumatological imagination; theology of disability
