Abstract. All people are created in the image of God, which gives every human being a dignity that can never be lost or diminished. This article develops a biblically sound understanding of what it means to be in God’s image. Next, it explores how important such an understanding is for people with disabilities. Finally, it traces out a number of implications of that understanding for people with profound intellectual disability.Keywords: agency, destiny, dignity, image of God, intellectual disability, justice, relationalityDevan Stahl, Ph.D. (St. Louis University), M.Div.
