Journal of Religion, Spirituality & Aging


The Journal of Religion, Spirituality and Aging is an interdisciplinary, interfaith professional journal in which the needs, aspirations, and resources of the elderly constituencies come clearly into focus. Combining practical innovation and scholarly insight, the journal offers timely information and probing articles on such subjects as ethical issues, death, long-term care for the elderly, support systems for families of the elderly, retirement, and more.


Published by Taylor & Franics, the journal aims to inform religious professionals—pastors, religious educators, chaplains, and pastoral counselors—about developments in the new field of religious gerontology. A second purpose of this journal is to inform secular professionals, such as administrators, counselors, nurses, physicians, recreational rehabilitative therapists and social workers, who work with elderly people and their families. A third goal is to focus the attention of the traditional academic disciplines within religious studies on human aging.
