About the Author

Rev. Justin Hancock is co-founder, with his wife Lisa, of the Julian Way, a ministry of community, advocacy, and empowerment for those with disabilities. He is also serving as the prior of the Epworth Project, a ministry of the Missional Wisdom Foundation in Dallas, Texas. He holds a MA in Christian Ministry from Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas.


"The Julian Way brings a vision of community in which all the members are valued, and all forms of gifted-ness are incorporated into the whole. This vision allows all people to have pride in who they are and to fully experience self-worth within the context of the greater Christian community. Hancock brings the reader an historical and theological overview of the world of disability and calls for a new day of empowerment and grace."

--Peggy A. Johnson, Bishop, Philadelphia Area of the United Methodist Church

"This book is a beautiful and deeply thoughtful exploration of disability theology from a practitioner whose hard-won wisdom will increasingly impact the church in the years ahead. A must read for Christian leaders."

--Elaine A. Heath, Dean, Professor of Missional and Pastoral Theology, Duke University

"Religious leaders reading scriptures from an able-bodied perspective will in this deeply moving book find a more inclusive understanding of God's presence in the world. This book breaks new ground for religious communities to systematically reflect on the human rights of differently abled-persons and widens the knowledge base of the church to articulate a theology of a disabled and vulnerable God. Must read for disability and church studies."

--Harold J. Recinos, author of Breathing Space

"The Julian Way opened my eyes to see each person as a gift from God. The stories challenge the Church to see with new eyes those we consider handicapped. Every congregation needs to read this book before examining where and how God is calling them to make disciples of Jesus Christ in their community."

--D. Max Whitfield, Bishop in Residence, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
