These re-designed classics are now more affordable.** As we confront our own mortality, we might ask, What has my long life meant and how have the years shaped me? or How long must I suffer? Such questions reflect time-consciousness, the focus of this new volume. The authors, from diverse disciplines in gerontology, act as guides in the exploration of the realms of time in later life and its meanings. As the authors examine how the study of time can give new meanings to aging, they also consider the religious and spiritual questions raised when human beings consider the temporal boundaries of life. This volume honors Melvin Kimbles contributions to gerontology and represents a new direction in the study of religion, spirituality, and aging.
