The Bonus Years: Foundations for Ministry with Older Persons.
Robb, Thomas Bradley
This book studies characteristics and needs of the aging in an attempt to relate the resources of the local church to the needs of older persons. It assumes that older persons have many individual needs which are not subject to large scale solutions and must therefore be approached locally. The purpose of this book is to deal with these more individual matters, and to lay a foundation from which the local church may begin to assist in their solution. There is a broad yet concise survey of the rapidly growing literature in the associated fields of social gerontology and geriatrics. Much information dealing with the results of studies conducted in the 1950s are used. A summary of a variety of approaches to effective ministry to the aging as they are carried on around the nation, and some final principles from which local programs may begin to take shape are also presented. An annotated bibliography is added. (PT)
