On Soul Search today, we're marking the International Day of People with Disability. According to the UN, about one billion people around the world live with a disability — that includes 1 in 5 people in Australia. In this episode, we'll hear from Abdulah Hamimi, a young Muslim man from Melbourne who suffered a spinal injury when he was only eighteen, and Dr Louise Gosbell, a scholar at the forefront of a new area of Biblical Studies - reading the Christian gospels from a disability perspective.
