Aging, Spirituality, and Religion, Volume 1 published in 1995 by Fortress Press, provided the sociological, psychological, and theological perspectives for examining the ways in which spirituality and religion are experienced by aging persons in our society. As such, it provided the theoretical foundations for considering aging, spirituality and religion. Volume II picks up where Volume I left off-with practical advice and tools for ministry with the aging in a variety of settings. Gerontological and theological perspectives undergird the practical guidance and a final section treats of the unique ethical issues involved in ministry with the aging. Contributors: Melvin A.

Areas addressed include spirtual potential,faith communities, pastoral caare, etical issues, theological perspectives and looking to the future. An essential read for those who work with elders and those who shape programming and funding regarding the needs of the elders in our society.
