BMN399 Biblical Perspectives on Suffering &
Disability (3)
This course is designed to develop a biblical understanding
of those who suffer or struggle with disability, and to
explore the impact on individuals and their families.
Major topics include: (1) an overview of disabilities; (2) an
understanding of biblical teaching related to disability and
suffering; (3) a focus on physical, intellectual, emotional
and sensory disabilities; and (4) an understanding of how
to offer support and help to individuals and families
affected by disability and/or suffering. Each Christian will
experience some degree of suffering since God uses this
to conform believers to the image of Christ. One of the
primary purposes of this course is to connect challenges
encountered by people affected by disabilities with the rest

various kinds. A corollary to this objective is to develop
reciprocity between the two groups, each learning from
the other that God’s grace is sufficient in all circumstances.
