Dementia: Living in the Memories of God

Dementia: Living in the Memories of God

Dementia is one of the most feared diseases in Western society today. Some have even gone so far as to suggest euthanasia as a solution to the perceived indignity of memory loss and the disorientation that accompanies it.

In this book John Swinton develops a practical theology of dementia for caregivers, people with dementia, ministers, hospital chaplains and medical practitioners as he explores two primary questions:

  • Who am I when I've forgotten who I am?
  • What does it mean to love God and be loved by God when I have forgotten who God is?

Offering compassionate and carefully considered theological and pastoral responses to dementia and forgetfulness, Swinton's Dementia: Living in the Memories of God redefines dementia in light of the transformative counter story that is the gospel.

Reviews

"John Swinton’s Dementia: Living in the Memories of God is an exceptional book. This book will change the way you think about people living with dementia, and maybe even the way you think about God and yourself! It is in my top 5 books that I have read in the past 20 years! Read it and read it now!” - Stephen Judd, Chief Executive, HammondCare.

"This groundbreaking book tells a counter-story of dementia that brings hope and challenges the fears that are so dominant within society and the church." - Elizabeth MacKinlay, Director, Centre for Ageing and Pastoral Studies, Professor of Theology, Charles Sturt University.

"John Swinton has clearly become the premier pastoral theologian of our time. In this book he approaches the troubled topic of dementia with his usual thoroughness, engaging the science with an unapologetic theological voice. Dementia: Living in the Memories of God will become a classic." - Stanley Hauerwas, Chair of Theological Ethics, University of Aberdeen
