Publisher's Description

A unique -- and needed -- assessment of aging This new book presents the first serious theological reflection ever on what it means to grow old, particularly in modern American society. Written by a superb team of Christian thinkers from a range of fields, the book explores how aging has been seen in Scripture, in the early church, in the Middle Ages, and in contemporary life. The authors also address many timely issues, including the medicalization of aging and why this reality presents such a challenge for Christians, and they discuss a number of constructive themes, 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 Growing Old in Christ.
