Overview

In a timely new release, Salomon revisits political polarization, compassion fatigue, even Girardian Theory, making the case that religious leaders absolutely must include neurodiverse humanity in religious life as spiritual equals, carefully listen to the spiritual voices of neurodiversity and accommodate neurodiverse individuals, if organized religion is going to have positive, life-affirming relations with the neurodiversity barricade, at all.

In Salomon's long awaited autism story, Salomon addresses directly how his autistic Christian ecological identity informs his activism, scholarship, method of theological reflection and spirituality. Salomon bases his "serious and radical" critique of normal society on the planetary crisis and institutional animal cruelty, attempting to reconcile disability justice with the planetary agenda, in the process.

Salomon demonstrates that in the long-run, including neurodiversity and disability justice on the planetary agenda will help accelerate non-disabled efforts towards sustainability, justice and nonviolence.

Salomon offers a practical framework with concrete guidance to the various disability and faith communities alike from a Christian liberation theology perspective, which will help realize a world worth living in, for everyone.
