520    "The role that disability and religion play in human 
       experience is vast, pervasive, and beyond simplification. 
       This edited collection critically examines how Judaism, 
       Christianity and Islam represent and respond to disability
       in their respective texts, traditions, and in contemporary
       society. Contributors incorporate literature and 
       theoretical analysis from the field of disability studies 
       resulting in an inter-religious and cross-cultural effort 
       to cultivate new ways to link religion and disability. The
       book is appealing to a broad readership including members 
       of the disabled community, scholars and students from 
       multiple academic and professional disciplines, and 
       religious practitioners from Jewish, Christian and Islamic
       traditions"--|cProvided by publisher
