Two of biggest interests that I have are theology and disability. Thankfully these two topics do intersect. When I wanted to talk about this, I knew exactly who I wanted to chat with.
Keith Dow is the Manager of Organizational and Spiritual Life at Christian Horizons. In addition to working on the front lines of disability ministry, Keith is also doing his PhD in theology. I have come to really respect and appreciate Keith’s thoughtful reflections on the intersection of theology and disabilities. I think you will enjoy our conversation.

The recommended audiobook for this episode is A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God’s Sovereignty by Joni Eareckson Tada
In this eloquent account of her current struggle with physical pain, Joni Eareckson Tada offers her perspective on divine healing, God’s purposes, and what it means to live with joy. Over four decades ago, a diving accident left Joni a quadriplegic. Today, she faces a new battle: unrelenting pain. The ongoing urgency of this season in her life has caused Joni to return to foundational questions about suffering and God’s will.
A Place of Healing is not an ivory tower treatise on suffering. Its an intimate look into the life of a mature woman of God. Whether readers are enduring physical pain, financial loss, or relational grief, Joni invites them to process their suffering with her. Together, they will navigate the distance between God’s magnificent yes and heartbreaking no and find new hope for thriving in between.
