Elizabeth Mackinlay brings an almost unique binocular approach to her subject, combining as she does her wisdom and vocation - both as a nurse and as an Anglican priest. As such, she is especially well-qualified to address the dimensions of spirituality and ageing. Mackinlay approaches the issues with a natural pastoral deftness, compassion and composure that will inspire and inform all who read her work. She is one of the leading writers in this field today, and as such, her books are an essential companion for all who work and study in this area.

By immersing ourselves in the universal nature of human spirituality we can create connections and discover the core of caring.
