Deaf Liberation Theology

Deaf Liberation Theology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deconstructing the theology and practice of the Church, Hannah Lewis shows how the Church unconsciously oppresses Deaf people through its view of them as people who can't hear. Lewis reclaims Deaf perspectives on Church history, examines how an essentially visual Deaf culture can relate to the written text of the bible and asks 'can Jesus sign?' This book pulls together all these strands to consider how worship can be truly liberating, truly a place for Deaf people to celebrate who they are before God.

Table of Contents

Framework and methodology — DEAF-WORLD : being deaf in the twenty-first century — DEAF-CHURCH : a history of deaf people and the church — Deaf people constructed in theology — Deaf people constructed in the church as an organization — DEAF-WORLD, sign language and the Bible — Can Jesus sign? : who is Jesus Christ for deaf people today? — What is truly deaf worship? — A liberating-shaped church.
