“This book is desperately needed. James Woodward’s study is masterful, informed, compassionate, theologically articulate, and pastorally compelling.” The Very Revd Ian Markham PhD, Dean and President of Virginia Theological Seminary

“This scholarly and accessible book is born out of the experience of a priest/pastoral theologian working in a community of older people…This book is a must read not only for those working with seniors, but for all of us to better understand the third stage of life.” The Revd Professor Abigail Rice Evans, Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, NJ

“James Woodward has spent the last ten years lecturing, writing and bringing to the fore the needs of older people. This book is a profound challenge to both Church and society. How do we respond to an older population? How does the Church think about outreach, mission and evangelisation among older people?” The Rt Revd David Urquhart, Bishop of Birmingham
