Abstract

DISABILITY, PROVIDENCE, AND ETHICS: BRIDGING GAPS,
TRANSFORMING LIVES, by Hans S. Reinders (Waco, TX: Baylor University
Press, 2014). xv + 232 pages. Hardcover. ISBN: 978-1481300650.
Why do “bad” things happen to good people? In this carefully composed book, Hans Reinders aims to change the way Christians think about disability and divine causality. He wants to rephrase the agonized question of “Why?” which so often arises from the experience of disability (particularly when acquired traumatically) as a disruption in “normal” life.
