From the emotional and poignant blog entries posted during his son Jacob’s uncertain birth, trying surgeries, and first year of living with Down syndrome, author and pastor Jeffrey M. Gallagher reflects honestly and candidly on disability theology, God’s place in tragedy and hardship, how the church welcomes (or not) people with differing abilities, and the joys—the wilderness blessings—that Jacob’s life has given him.

Appealing to pastors, people of faith, readers interested in disability theology, parents and family members of those who are differently-abled, those who are interested in issues of inclusivity and acceptance, and those who struggle with understanding how God speaks and where God moves during difficult times, Wilderness Blessings is a unique book that gives a pastoral and parental perspective into the reformation of a life and faith that have been blessed by the addition of a child with Down syndrome. After reading this book you may look at life and blessings from God in a new way.

Jeffrey M. Gallagher is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and has served as pastor of the First Congregational Church of Kittery Point, United Church of Christ in Kittery Point, Maine since 2003. He earned his M.Div. from Andover Newton Theological School, and D.Min. from Bangor Theological Seminary. He enjoys writing, running, Boston sports, and currently makes his home in Maine with his wife and two sons.
