The book “Asistenţa socială şi religiozitatea la persoanele cu handicap” [Social work and religiosity for people with disabilities], authored by Carman Gabriela Mândrilă Lăzăreanu, published by Lumen Publishing House from Iasi, Romania, in 2020, aims from the beginning to be an important guide for young generations, developing both the secular dimension of social work and the religious dimension, specific to theological environments. We welcome the publishing of the book, especially since social discourses and, unfortunately, those of some Romanian public personalities blame the vulnerable condition of the people who depend on financial benefits and other types of intervention and support services. In this sense, the book clarifies from the beginning the importance of changing mentalities, norms, and how these people are perceived, for a solution to the problems they face. Approached in terms of cause and effect, the volume focuses on the social, psychological, medical, and legal dimensions that define the situation of disability in order to build an objective framework for assessing and supporting the condition of disability.
