Item description for Aging and Ministry in the 21st Century: An Inquiry Approach by Richard H. Gentzler, Jr....
Overview Aging faithfully is a blessing and a challenge and Richard Gentzler is an expert on the subject. In his newest book on aging, Gentzler offers church leaders a structured approach to implementing strong ministries by, with, and for older adults. In addition to the practical issues of programming, the book takes on more difficult topics of aging including chronic conditions, depression, and death. He also recommends that churches pay special attention to the needs of the boomer generation, since they are now becoming the older adults who will determine the church's path for years to come.

Recommended reading for religious readers Nov 7, 2008
Times change, and people change with them. "Aging and Ministry in the 21st Century: An Inquiry Approach" is a look at aging and the changing spiritual needs of people who are advancing in age and the concerns that come with it. Telling ministers that while focusing on the needs of children and young adults is fine, it is important not to forget the needs of the elderly. Presenting much for ministers to think about and a lot of ideas for them, "Aging and Ministry in the 21st Century" is very much recommended reading for religious readers.
