My Body Is Not A Prayer Request

This is the title of a new book by Amy Kenny.

I wish I had the wherewithal to write an eloquent review of this book. But right now I don’t I’m afraid.

But, it is a book that anyone who cares about disabled people and the church should read – and probably most especially those that don’t think there is an issue!

An honest, open and real look at how disability can be treated by those in the church, and giving an account of how disability can be. It shines a light on assumptions, misusing scripture, ableism and the sometimes just crass comments. All in the context of God and what God is and is doing. It shares a vision, celebrates gifts and offers hope. It finishes with two beautiful “benecriptions”.

You can probably sum my thoughts up in “yes!”.

If you get a chance, do read it. It is available in the UK in whatever your preferred method of “reading” is. I have it on my e-reader, it is available as an audio book and as a paperback, or see if you can get it from your library.

Thank you Amy Kenny for this book.
