"Intellectually sophisticated, theologically sound, clinically wise, and eminently practical..." @britedivinity… https://t.co/qlZGocFVa3
Author(s): John Hull, John M. Hull
The Tactile Heart is a collection of theological essays on relating blindness and faith and developing a theology of blindness that makes a constructive contribution to the wider field of disability theology. John Hull looks at key texts in the Christian tradition, such as the Bible, written as a text for sighted people, and at hymns, which often use blindness as a metaphor for ignorance and explores how these can be read by blind people.
Interview with author John Hull in Church Times.
John Martin Hull B.Ed. M.A. Ph.D. Litt.D. (22 April 1935 – 28 July 2015) was Emeritus Professor of Religious Education at the University of Birmingham. He was the author of a number of books and many articles in the fields of religious education, practical theology, and disability. He was the author of Mission-Shaped Church: A Theological Response (2006), a serious theological evaluation of the framework within which the Anglican policy document 'Mission-Shaped Church' is presented, raising questions about the concepts of Kingdom, Church, Gospel and Mission.
John M. Hull is Honorary Professor of Practical Theology in the Queen's Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education, Birmingham and Emeritus Professor of Religious Education at the University of Birmingham.
In this wonderful compilation of John Hull's work he offers us wisdom and challenge as he draws to our attention the beauty and the breadth of possibilities for being human and living humanly in the midst of difference. If you are genuinely interested in understanding humanness, this book will certainly aid you on your journey. -- John Swinton
