A Bible Study book for individuals or groups, which explores how the Bible today can help us to view illness and disability in a way which helps people thrive, and points the way to making society a better environment where everybody is treated with respect and justice. What are the challenges facing carers in today's world, and should it be seen as a gift? What is meant by terms such as 'strength in weakness' and 'the authority of suffering'? Illness, Disability and Caring is part of the all new series, How the Bible can Help us Understand. These short books are aimed at ordinary people committed in their faith and wanting to live Christianly, but not brought up in a Bible-studying tradition. They prompt intelligent thought, reflection and guidance on issues that really matter to people, using illustrations from life and popular culture as well as studies of Bible passages. They are not 'The Bible has all the answers', but 'How can the Bible contribute to my understanding?'.
