Theology & Life

Encountering God for people with profound intellectual disabilities

In a Christian theological culture in which words, ideas, propositions and the ability to process them seem essential to developing a relationship with God, how do we understand the spiritual potential of people whose disabilities are so profound as to make such words inaccessible? Can a person who cannot hear ‘the Words’ come to really know ‘the Word’? 

This course confronts some of these hard questions, taking a fresh biblical and theological look at these issues by exploring God’s diverse modes of revealing Himself to human beings and making it possible for them to be encountered by Him and His love.

Presented by Dr Jill Harshaw, author of the ground–breaking book, God Beyond Words (2016).
