As society becomes progressively dominated by an ideology of healthy living, Matt Edmonds makes a vital critique of contemporary efforts to remove `disability' from the world around us. Surveying the logic and language of both secular and religious health movements, Edmonds highlights the misplaced generalisations and dubious values that cumulatively serve to undermine individual inclusion and wellbeing on a day-to-day basis.

A Theological Diagnosis seeks a new direction. From the resources of Christian theology it finds a paradigm with which to examine the infections of genetic theory, faith healing and the meaning of `disability' so as to prescribe a way forward for both believer and non-believer alike. Combining history, theology and thoughtful analysis, this is a prescription that none of us can afford to ignore.

Three able voices -- A graceful 'on behalf of' -- The genetic revolution -- A theological diagnosis of genetics -- Obstructing healthy critique : the global rise of faith healing -- The infections of faith healing -- Beyond scriptural blindness : a biblical reflection on faith healing -- The alternative therapeutic of L'Arche.
