Reviews

"Hauerwas and Vanier insist on the holiness of people with disabilities. . . . The political implications of gentleness in the last chapter is worth the entire book."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"This little book did not disappoint, offering a brief but compelling argument for the place of weakness in the life of the Church. An important book for our churches to read and reflect upon."--Englewood Review of Books
