About-

Have you ever wondered whether God knows what it is like to have a disability? Can God know this? The answer to these questions matters to the estimated one billion people with a disability worldwide. Jesus the Disabled God offers an affirmative answer. Jesus’ ministry was itself a positive affirmation of those who experience disability, but Jesus went beyond ministry to people with disabilities and actually experienced disability himself on the cross. The amazing thing about this experience is that it was freely chosen, even planned from all eternity. As a consequence, the God-man Jesus now knows what it is like to have a disability. Furthermore, because of his glorious resurrection from the dead, Jesus is no longer disabled and can offer hope to those who are.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Jenny Cox uses her experience as a mother of two children with disabilities to reflect on the idea of a ‘disabled God.’ While some may find the concept of God being disabled a radical idea, Cox seeks to make the concept understandable for those within an evangelical tradition. While rejecting the idea that God is disabled in his eternal being, she finds God in Christ has experienced human disability, and that this is decisive for those seeking to come to terms with human disability.”

—Mark Worthing, Pastor, Immanuel Lutheran Church



“As Cox notes, this provides us with an understanding on God’s perspective and, therefore, how Christian’s perceive disability and people who live with disability. I hope that helps to bring about a more inclusive church here in Australia and all around the world. This is the vision that CBM holds and it is exciting to have this book by Jennifer Cox as a significant contribution to that vision.”

—Rob Nicholls, Church Engagement Manager, CBM Australia
