Sarah Jean Barton very generously reads Wondrously Wounded as offering a fresh methodological approach to a range of problems and puzzles that attend theological thinking about the intellectually disabled. Deftly inverting Miguel Romero’s (Citation2020) criticism of the overall approach I pursue in Wondrously Wounded, she proposes that I have proved that the irruptive singularity of Adam’s witness can be meaningfully held together with a faithful reading of the Christian theological tradition. I am deeply appreciative of her drawing attention to the fact that I seek an approach that not only valorizes, but embodies the maxim “nothing about us without us,” and does so taking full account of my being an able-bodied neurotypical white man.
