African Churches Ministering 'to and With' Persons with Disabilities

Perspectives from Zimbabwe
  • By Nomatter Sande
Product Description

This book engages with Christian church traditions and disability issues in Africa, focusing on Zimbabwe in particular. It critically reflects on how the church has not done much to intentionally minister 'to and with' persons with disabilities. In the context of this volume, 'ministering to' is concerned with creating worshipping space for persons with disabilities; while 'ministering with' is connecting and identifying with persons with disabilities to meet their needs from the material life of the church. The author considers a stewardship model of disability as an appropriate ministerial response to transform lives in poverty-stricken postcolonial contexts. The argument put forth is that the church is a living organism endowed with spiritual and material resources, and that these resources should be appropriated to marginalised stakeholders.
