Miles Ahead: Devotions from Older Adults
Devotionals exist for teens, college students, new moms and every other kind of whippersnapper. But one demographic group has been relatively ignored by the niche-devotional trend: older Americans. Religious publishers are beginning to wake up to the aging of America (see ""Confronting the Inevitable"" in PW's Religion Update, July 2), and this is, as baby boomer maven Martha Stewart would say, a good thing. Into the mix, Judson offers Miles Ahead: Devotions from Older Adults,edited by Carol Spargo Pierskalla. Because it consists of older Americans writing for people their own age, there's no sense of condescension. Contributors muse about their spiritual journeys and about their grandchildren, deceased parents, retirements and regrets. It's a golden devotional for the golden years.
