Knowing, Being Known, and the Mystery of God


Hans Reinders has followed an untypical path of rethinking major questions in theology and ethics from the perspective of relationships with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Colleagues, collaborators, and friends from across the globe and a variety of professional disciplines address diverse themes related to his work and their own, including friendships as the foundation for knowing, and our own vulnerability, limitations, and dependence upon the grace of God, through and with others. The diversity of views and experiences deepens and broadens our understanding of the ways we know and are known.
With a poetic letter by Jean Vanier, founder of L’Arche, and five comments on Hans Reinders by women and man with a disability.
