Society today is increasingly segregated by age. Rarely do three or four generations live in the same town, much less the same house. Nursing homes, retirement communities, work, school, and daycare keep the ages separate and in their own worlds. Even the church is following these same societal trends.

Bridging the Generations is about changing attitudes, about intergenerational relationships in the church and about bringing all generations closer together. Wiebe challenges readers to listen to the voice of God urging them to stretch out and touch one another, whatever the age, to make peoplehood a reality.

At the end of each chapter there are questions, activities, and ideas for new directions to pursue.

"Katie Funk Wiebe has offered us a book firmly grounded in intergenerational wisdom and the unfailing love of God. Her book moves us toward renewing the life-giving bonds between generations so that we will all recognize the ageless image of God in each other." Sara Wenger Shenk

"Katie Funk Wiebe is a 21st-century prophet. This book is a must read for those concerned about the importance of the role of older adults in 21st-century Christianity."--Dwight E. Roth, Lifelong Education and Development (LEAD), Hesston College
