Deaf Liberation Theology (Explorations in Practical, Pastoral and Empirical Theology) Hannah Lewis
Following years of theology of deafness based on the premise that Deaf people are simply people who can’t hear, this book breaks new ground. Presenting a new approach to Deaf people, theology and the Church, this book enables Deaf people who see themselves as members of a minority group to formulate their own theology rooted in their own history and culture. Deconstructing the theology and practice of the Church, Hannah Lewis shows how the Church unconsciously oppresses Deaf people through its view of them as people who can’t hear. Lewis reclaims Deaf perspectives on Church history, examines how an essentially visual Deaf culture can relate to the written text of the bible and asks ‘can Jesus sign?’ This book pulls together all these strands to consider how worship can be truly liberating, truly a place for Deaf people to celebrate who they are before God.
