    L'Arche has played a huge role in my life for the past 6 years and as both a current assistant as well as a theologian I found this book to be very thought provoking There are a number of essays here written by a variety of different authors many of whom are uite well known in the disability field Some of the essays look at science the role of prenatal testing or abortion vs prolife some look at the psychological and sociological issues of stigmatization and living with differences and some were completely theological in nature looking at issues like suffering peace studies and wholeness The essays were written in a academic way however there were a few personal stories thrown in and one essay written by a man with a disability himself who pondered the uestion of euthanasia and the need for community My only criticism of this book is that I think it is a bit too idealistic L'Arche is written in a very powerful way and almost in the idyllic sense however it doesn't take into account the real L'Arche which can often be tumultuous and is imperfect Nevertheless an enjoyable academic read
