    Inspiring and challenging study that rethinks the Bible s teaching on disability A theologian whose life experience includes growing up alongside a brother with Down syndrome, Amos Yong in this book rereads and reinterprets biblical texts about human disability, arguing that the way we read biblical texts, not the Bible itself, is what causes us to marginalize persons with disabilities. Teaching Math to People with Down Syndrome and other Hands-on Learners: Strategies and Materials, 2nd Edition. features practical instruction, including general teaching strategies plus topic-specific ideas for prenumber concepts, number sense, counting, whole number addition & subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, money, and other real-world math concepts .

    Shortly after reading Theology and Down Syndrome, I picked up Nancy Eiesland’s landmark work, The Disabled God: Toward a Liberatory Theology of Disability (Abingdon, ). Though not the first book published in the field of theology and disability, it was the fountainhead for many other works on the same topic.
