Front Cover
Greenwood Press, 1992 - Reference - 218 pages
0 Reviews
This comprehensive bibliography lists more than 700 books, journal articles, and dissertations on religion and aging. While most of the items are scholarly studies, works of interest to the general reader are also included. Detailed annotations describe the contents of each entry. The bulk of the material is from the Jewish and Christian traditions; however, the bibliography also treats writings from other faiths. A lucid introductory essay overviews trends in religion and aging and summarizes the contents of the bibliography. Thorough author and subject indexes conclude the work and add to its value as an indispensable reference on religion and the elderly.
