Let me know if you would you like to review this book?

Disabled Church - Disabled Society: The Implications of Autism for Philosophy, Theology and Politics by John Gillibrand with a foreword by Rowan Williams.
The book pictured here is due to be published in January 2010 and I'm looking forward to reading it - or should that be looking forward to the idea that I might have the time to read it! I'm also just about to order a review copy for the Ecumenical Review - writing this post is my way of reminding myself to do that - so if you're interested in writing a review of it then do get in touch.
Here's some of what the blurb says:
In this moving and intelligent book John Gillibrand, an Anglican priest, draws on his experience of caring for his non-verbal son, Adam, who has autism and is now a teenager. He reflects on how the experience has changed not just his life, but also his whole way of thinking about theology, politics and philosophy. Illuminated by an account of his day to day experiences with Adam, and deeper reflection upon the meaning of that experience, John Gillibrand considers the challenges that autism - and disability in general - present to the western tradition of thought in theology and philosophy.
