Aging and the Religious Dimension

Synopsis

Aging and religion has been badly neglected in the field of Gerontology. There has been a growing awareness that the loss of the sense of the sacred has left each individual to cope with issues of meaning and purpose as best he or she can. This collection addresses the needs of the elderly who find themselves grappling with basic issues of existence in the final years of life: coherence and purpose.
