Item description for Wrinkled But Not Ruined: Counsel for the Elderly by Jay Edward Adams...
Overview An older person may be like a fruit-bearing tree that still produces in old age! He needn't waste the last years of his life watching TV. He may still have a productive place in God's kingdom-if only he will. Most books that seek to help elderly persons major on sociological or psychological studies. Here is something different! In Wrinkled but Not Ruined Adams sets forth biblical commands and principles that will help pastors, families and churches minister to elderly believers in a Godly manner. Adams applies scripture to the problems and opportunities of old age in ways that can make the latter years fruitful and rewarding. Don't miss this book if you minister to an older person, or if you yourself are approaching old age and want to deal with the issues before they become problems.

More About Jay Edward Adams
For over 40 years Dr. Jay Adams has been a modern day prophet calling God's people back from their dalliance with unbiblical psychological theory to a renewed confidence in the power of the Holy Spirit and the sufficiency of God's Word to equip the man of God to help his people with problems of living and relationship. Happily, many have heeded his call and over the years a movement, both deep and wide, has developed, consisting of pastors and other Christian workers who have been trained in and are practicing the kind of truly biblical counseling God intended for His people to receive.
Jay Edward Adams was born in Baltimore on January 30, 1929 and was born again about 15 years later in response to the reading of a New Testament that was given to him by a friend. He received his formal training at Reformed Episcopal Seminary (B.D.), Johns Hopkins University (A.B.), Pittsburgh-Xenia Seminary, Temple University School of Theology (M.ST.), and the University of Missouri (Ph.D.). He pastored churches in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, served as a denominational official, a professor at Westminster Theological Seminary, the director of the Doctoral program at Westminster Theological Seminary in California, and then as a church planting pastor in South Carolina. He was also the the founder of the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation in Philadelphia, the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors, and Timeless Texts which now publishes his books.
In 1999 Dr. Adams retired from the pastorate of the church he had planted in South Carolina and has devoted his time to writing and lecturing. In the fall of 2001 the Redeemer Biblical Counseling Training Institute (RBCTI) was established at the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Moore, SC to provide a vehicle by which Dr. Adams could continue teaching.
When word got out that Dr. Adams was lecturing regularly again we began to get requests for tapes and inquiries about studying by extension. While many of the lectures Dr. Adams has given over the years are available from a variety of sources we have concluded that it would be a blessing to God's people if we could make a quality, structured, video taped course of study available for those who desire to be better equipped to minister the Word of God. Thus INS was born.
While health problems have restricted Dr. Adams' travel schedule, requiring him to slow down physically, he is still anxious to have an ongoing ministry, especially to pastors. He continues to write and though he has to sit behind a desk when he teaches, his lectures are still energetic, lively, and challenging. Those who have been enrolled at RBCTI this past year have given the Institute high marks and report it has been a great blessing in their lives and ministries.
Jay Edward Adams was born in 1929.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wrinkled But Not Ruined: Counsel for the Elderly?
Helpfull Oct 27, 2007
Having reached 61 with seven chronic health conditions I decided I needed to read up on a Christian attitude to ageing. Adams as always is full of wise counsel though I thought he could have done more on the blessings of age like wisdom and grandchildren. There is much wise counsel here for older people and those caring for them pastorally.
