A fresh look at Biblical characters through the lens of disability. Ora Horn Prousers shows how symptoms of ADHD, depression, mental retardation, speech impediments, gifted learning & physical disabilities appear in Bible & shows how Bible teaches us how to respond w/acceptance & compassion. "Few books make one a significantly more sensitive reader of the Bible. Few books on the Bible make one a more sensitive person. Ora Horn Prouser's book does both, with the insight and grace of a scholar, a teacher, and a parent. Prouser's interpretations of Biblical stories and characters draw on what professionals have learned about special needs and challenges and provide new and humanizing perspectives on mostly familiar Biblical stories. Readers will be moved by the book and moved as they never were before by the Bible. They will never read the Bible-or anything else-the same way again. The book is essential reading for educators, parents, and students of Bible. -Edward L. Greenstein, director of Institute for Jewish Biblical Interpretation of Bar-Ilan University "A well-researched, respectful, fresh perspective on disabilities in Biblical narratives." - Judith Z. Abrams, author, Judaism and Disability: Portrayals in Ancient Texts from the Tanach through the Bavli
