Overview
"What must be seen to be fully appreciated is (sign's) singular appropriateness for religious worship . . . . It is perhaps in the church service that the beauty of sign becomes most evident. Some churches have sign choirs. Watching the robed members sign in unison can be an awe-inspiring experience." (Jerome D. Schein, Speaking the Language of Sign). DeAnn Sampley's book is about ministry to the deaf -- not only worship, but also nurture, service, and understanding. A Guide to Deaf Ministry reveals that serving deaf people involves cross-cultural communication. Those who would minister to the deaf must understand their needs, their language, their world. This book encompasses all these things, showing readers how to begin a deaf ministry, the resources that are available, what the deaf culture is like, and the special aspects of interpreting through sign in the church and worship settings. This is a book for all who seek to minister to deaf people, who live with them, or who number themselves among them.
