Disability and Determination: Book Notice

Some of you may have seen Mark Grantham on the TV last year, he has cerebral palsy, is consequently confined to a wheelchair and unable to do much for himself.  He has become (a little bit) famous in NZ as he has spent his Saturdays for 20 years selling choclate in Auckland in order to sponsor kids in the third world through World Vision. He is also a committed Christian despite the fact that he has had many unpleasant experiences with some churches treating him as a non-human and encouters with "healing ministries" that don't know how to cope with someone who doesn't get better.  His dad has written a biography of him.  You can get hold of it here.

[Update: Dale offers his own impressions and some further links here]
