CAN MEMORY SHAPE US SPIRITUALLY?

What if our memories are like shells we


gather on a beach? According to pastor and
spiritual director Casey Tygrett, “We—and all
those who have come before us—pick up the
experience and we sense it. . . . Is it beautiful?
How would you describe the color—the tones,
the shades, wrapped around the ridges and
swirls? Has it been damaged? Does the hard
edge scrape our hand, leaving a blemish or
a mark?”

How we hold and carry these memories—


good and bad—is a part of what forms us
spiritually. In this way we have a common bond
with the people of Scripture who also had a
sensory life, gathering shells and trying to make
sense of them. In these pages Tygrett explores the

HEALING
MAPPING & DISABILITY
HOLY GROUND IN THE CHURCH

What does healing mean for people with dis-


abilities? Misinterpretation and misapplication
of biblical healing narratives can do great
damage, yet those who take the Bible seriously
mustn’t avoid these passages either. Bridging
biblical studies, ethics, and disability studies
with the work of practitioners, Bethany
McKinney Fox examines healing narratives in
their biblical and cultural contexts.

This theologically grounded and winsomely


practical resource helps us more fully under-
stand what Jesus does as he heals and how he
points the way for relationships with people
with disabilities. Disability and the Way of Jesus
provides new lenses on holistic healing for
scholars, laypeople, and ministry leaders who

MAIN SELECTION

“All of us who take to heart, head, and hands the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ healing ministry that
this volume so ably conveys for the present time, will gain new access to Jesus’ transformative touch.”
—P A U L L O U I S M E T Z G E R ,
Multnomah University and Seminary, author of Consuming Jesus

Q&A WITH BETHANY McKINNEY FOX

What or who inspired you to write Disability and the Way of Jesus?
Following in the way of Jesus has been the beautiful adventure of my life. At the same time, I
have noticed that many of my friends and colleagues with disabilities have been wounded by
people, trying to follow in the “healing” way of Jesus, who offer words and practices that are
anything but healing. This puzzled me. How could healing be harmful? People Jesus inter-
acted with (and healed) had such positive responses, but such is not always the case for many
people with disabilities in churches today. It felt important to build an ethic of healing in the
way of Jesus (and to give concrete ideas for churches) that was truly healing, particularly for
people with disabilities.

What is the main message of this book?


My thesis is that Jesus was not just curing bodies but transforming lives on many different
levels, and to follow in this healing way faithfully requires care and thoughtfulness—and
awareness of the different cultural understandings of health. Reading the Gospel healing
texts through multiple perspectives, as in my book, helps us to see that. Whereas most books
in this field tend to be either academic or theoretical (written by theologians) or only about
the how-to of ministry (written by practitioners/educators), my book bridges the two.

LIVE THE QUESTIONS


Jeffrey F. Keuss
Life is full of questions—about our identity, our relationships, our
faith—and sometimes there are no easy answers. But our questioning
can lead us on a journey into greater understanding and purpose. Jeffrey
Keuss takes us on a tour of Scripture to find insights from people who
asked questions of God and others, exploring what those questions can
teach us about doubt, faith, and uncertainty in our everyday lives.

Christopher J. H. Wright
It’s easy to see the Old Testament as confusing, out of date, or irrele-

Christopher J. H. Wright fits the pieces together, shows us the coherent
whole, and points us toward Jesus. This short survey shows God’s faith-
fulness and love for his people and illuminates how the Old Testament
Scriptures prepared for the identity and mission of Jesus.

READING ROMANS WITH EASTERN EYES


Jackson W.
According to Jackson W., some traditional East Asian cultural val-

mon Western cultural values. In this work Jackson demonstrates
how paying attention to East Asian culture provides a helpful lens
for interpreting Paul’s most complex letter, and we see how honor
and shame shape so much of Paul’s message and mission.
