Older People and the Church


T&T Clark 2002

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The phenomenal growth in the numbers of old people around the world is a demographic revolution. This goes hand in hand with a great decline, particularly in Britain and the West, in the numbers of people attending church. As churches eagerly seek to evangelize the younger generations, how does this impact on their attitude to older people? The book seeks to explore the relationships between older people and the church, sociologically and theologically. How will the church view older people in the 21st century? Will churches collude in the ageist attitudes of so many, or seek to attract - and nurture - older members?
