Louise J. Lawrence brings sensory anthropology and disability studies material into conversation with biblical material and its modern commentators. Each chapter takes a different sensory-disabled character from the Gospels as its focus. Lawrence challenges disciplinary norms regarding disability and “normative” methodologies in biblical studies.

    Had to read it for a class. It was horrible, much of what it tries to do is explain why those who are sensory-disabled should receive more attention. This is not a bad thing but how it does this is by taking the desire to help people and nit-picking verses to agree with that desire. I gave it two stars because it does draw attention to the topic. I disagreed with the method and much of the content but I also never considered those who are disabled.
