Description

When John Hull went blind he realised that the Bible was written by sighted people. Even Jesus shared in the attitudes of his day towards blindness. In writing this exceptional book, Hull ignored the printed text and listened to the Bible on tape. The result is an entirely novel interpretation, which challenges the sighted monopology yet brings fresh insights into the Bible for both sighted and blind. This book makes a powerful contribution to the burgeoning interest in theologies of disability. 'A masterpiece ...' Oliver Sacks on Teaching the Rock in the New York Review of Books
