In the past few years, there has been a shift in the issues that have occupied the forefront of the Evangelical imagination in the United States, and this shift has worked to center voices that are often marginalized. Preachers and writers like Beth Moore, Beth Allison Barr and Kristin Kobes DuMez have spoken truth to power regarding assumptions about so-called Biblical gender roles, and Black and brown Christians like Jemar Tisby, Austin Channing Brown, and Drew G.I. Hart have started necessary discussions of the church’s historical complicity in racist policies, assumptions, and theologies. I’m so pleased tonight to be speaking to someone who is contributing to this valuable shift in Christian intersectional thought through her discussion of another facet of identity–the experiences of disabled Christians. I’m excited to welcome Dr. Amy Kenny to Christian Humanist Profiles to speak about her new book My Body is Not a Prayer Request: Disability in the Church.
