A tidal wave is coming. The baby boomers have already started reaching the age of retirement and as they age, they will change everything. Is the church ready? And how can elders benefit the church? How does the church support and encourage not only elders but caregivers? This is an outstanding, passionate book. It repeats itself a little and goes off track once in awhile, but overall, is very good. I would encourage any young person to look at some type of gerontology as they prepare to work in the world that is coming. ( )

Those weaknesses are minor compared with the massive amount of useful information about the serious nature of an issue that few churches
address and few ministers prepare for. This book challenges pastors, lay leaders, and congregations to embrace healthy attitudes and actions toward aging adults, for the sake of themselves, for the future of the church,
and for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.

[Preface] As far back as I (Dr. Parker) can remember, older people have played a crucial and unique role in my life.
[Prologue: Distressed Communities] In the book of Nehemiah, Jerusalem was initially pictured as a vulnerable community, not unlike those without a social support system today.
Major catastrophes like 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the 2008 Haitian earthquake can serve as a wakeup call to individuals, families, communities and nations about the necessity of being prepared.
[Epilogue] As missionaries in Spain, living very simply in faith for our material as well as spiritual needs, my (Dr. Houston's) parents were profoundly influenced by the Spanish people with thom we lived.
