Same Lake, Different Boat: Coming Alongside People Touched by Disability challenges us to renew our minds to think biblically about disability. In a fallen world, we all experience brokenness. In our humanity, we all experience limited ability. We’re in the same lake, sharing a common story—but because our experiences differ from person to person, we’re not in the same boat.
When it comes to people with disability, we often act like we’re in different lakes. Disability can seem frightening, abnormal—or even irrelevant to those who do not experience it.
But Stephanie Hubach argues that there is a better way to understand disability, the challenges facing those touched by disability, and the role of the church in the lives of people with differing abilities. She pinpoints biblical truths about disability, in contrast to common secular views, and how we need to rethink supporting one another to make God’s kingdom truly accessible to all.
This revised and updated edition includes new chapters on growing in grace and journeying into maturity.
