Growing Old in Christ

Full Product Description

This new book presents the first serious theological reflection we have on what it means to grow old, particularly in modern American society.

Written by superb team of Christian thinkers from a range of fields, the book explores historical questions of how aging has been seen in Scripture, in the early church, in the Middle Ages, and in contemporary life. Some of the more timely issues raised here include the medicalization of aging, and why this reality presents such a challenge for Christians. A number of constructive themes are also discussed, such as relations among the elderly, friendship, and the care of one another. Every mature reader, as well as those who care for the aging, will benefit from this book.
