Valuing Age: Pastoral Ministry with Older People


SPCK 2008

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


With a strong focus on pastoral care and practical theology related to age and aging, this book will help caregivers in many different settings understand the elderly and the issues they face. In particular, it examines how theories of age relate to our experience, and how such experience might challenge and shape our theologies. Shared commitment to lifelong learning can help our ministry to be reflective and wise; it can broaden our imagination with sympathy. Valuing Age is grounded in the experiences of older people—their hopes and fears, their problems and possibilities. Each chapter includes exercises for further reflection, and notes that point to related readings.
