EPISODE 49: The Imago Dei and Human Disabilities
In 2002, Hammond’s youngest daughter Rebecca was born with severe cognitive disability. This created a crisis in the author’s faith which led him to the Scriptures to reconsider what it means for a human being to be made in the image of God. In this article, Hammond explains what he discovered and what it means for persons like his daughter and all human beings to be made in the image of God. He also discusses how individuals and churches can welcome families with a member who has severe cognitive disabilities. Read the full article here.
