Some people have called epilepsy the disability towards which Christianity has been most antagonistic, partly because of the Church's tendency to attribute demon possession to the condition. Drawing on the very latest thinking in this area, Roy McCloughry, who is committed to supporting the increasing participation of people with disabilities in Christian communities and in society at large, reveals how people's lives are still being blighted by such attitudes, though there is much to celebrate too. This engaging book aims to encourage people to become involved with people with disabilities, as friendship is one of keys to breaking down the barriers which lead to stereotypes and fear.

Roy McCloughry

Roy McCloughry is director of Kingdom Trust, a consultancy on applied social ethics, and Tutor in Ethics and Social Theology at St John's College, Nottingham. He has had personal experience of disability, having been epileptic since birth. His daughter was recently cured of epilepsy through brain surgery, against all the odds.
