by James L. Knapp

The United States is in the midst of a dramatic transformation! Our population is aging at such a rapid rate that we recently passed a major milestone: for the first time in history our nation has more senior citizens than teenagers.

This fact could be interpreted as a sign that churches are slowly dying. But it could also be interpreted with great optimism: many churches are in the early stages of a wonderful opportunity for ministry with senior adults.

But fully utilizing that potential depends on adopting a new model of senior adult ministry. This practical, informative, and inspiring new book shows how. Surveying current gerontological literature, it shows how churches can minister with its older members, not simply to them.

James L. Knapp, PhD is associate professor of sociology and gerontology at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Durant, OK. He has written and spoken extensively on the subject of aging and religion.
