How should Christians react to persons with disabilities? A Beautiful Mind is based on the true story of John Forbes Nash, Jr., a genius above geniuses. Nash was plagued by paranoid schizophrenia, experiencing inner voices and psychotic scenarios so realistic that they hijacked his life. Yet through the trauma that ruined his career, his wife and colleagues believed in him and accepted him. The strength of his “beautiful mind” helped Nash beat this usually progressive and degenerative mental illness. In 1994, he won a Nobel Prize for research that revolutionized the study of economics and produced stunning revisions in political science, anti-trust law, evolutionary biology, and trade theory. Using this issue of Reel to Real can help youth learn to compassionately include persons with disabilities.
