Empowering the Older Generation Review by Hilary Forbes
Star Rating
Michael Apichella throws out the challenge to stop segregating against those who have lived long on this Earth, and instead to recognise our responsibilities in the communities of faith we live in.

‘For many elderly people, having grey hair and wrinkles is tantamount to being surplus to requirement, especially when it comes to feeling useful....The fact is, the older we get, the more useful we become to God!’

This book encourages us to realise how society influences our own perception of the elderly. It challenges us afresh to dig deep into our own prejudices and the words which come naturally to us, in our thinking and descriptions of elderly people.

The Church’s Hidden Asset presents an overview of society’s attitudes towards the elderly, outlining the framework of the growing youth culture in the west in which attitudes towards the young and old are becoming ever more polarised.
Attitudes subtly inherent in our society towards life as only of value if deemed useful is shown by the hard hitting facts of abortion and euthanasia, urging us to recognise what is already going on within many hospital walls today.

How can the Church today empower the older generation? This question is answered by a wealth of simple but challenging advice, presented in a variety of ways which will you will remember a long time after you have read these pages. The wisdom of the book derives straight from Scripture and provides a refreshingly clear Biblical framework for the issues covered. This is an invaluable read for any Christian, and a great resource for your church library. (Posted on 27/04/2010)
