Format: Perfect Paperback
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.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Aging and Ministry provides a great introduction into ministry to the most rapidly expanding demographic group at he start of the twenty-first century. Gentzler provides a succinct but very informative overview of the challenges that older adults face, including the negative stereotypes that are prevalent in our culture today. He asks provocative questions about the reader's views surrounding these stereotypes and challenges us to think outside the box. Although the book is short, Gentzler provides concrete steps that can be used to develop and expand effective ministry to older adults. It is a wonderful introduction to a vast area.

Recommended reading for churches who have a limited knowledge of seniors. This is excellent reading to begin an active
senior ministry.
