    Book details


Transitions Through Adult Life is a summary of what is known about adults and how they develop. More than a book describing life' crises, it portrays the potential of life's transitions. It seeks to offer answers to the problems it analyzes. This book provides an overview of the various stages of adult life, what is typical in those stages, and how the church needs to be responsive to adults as they traverse the stages. The twenty-six chapters deal with young adulthood, middle adulthood, and older adulthood and most of the major events and challenges that one may encounter in those stages. Some of the specific topics include courtship, singleness, faith development, career, child-rearing, loss of loved ones, divorce, physical decline, etc. The chapters are succinct summaries of the significant dimensions of the topic calling upon existing research and the author's own keen powers of synthesis.

    Good book for adult ministries and teachers. Helps to understand the different phases of life. From infants through the whole life cycle and what to expect as we mature in life.

    If you are interested in adult development from a Christian perspective this is the book! Rich with psychological theory Sell helps us see the implications for the church's ministry to adults through all stages of life. Strongest for young and middle adults though taking the traditional view of older adults, this book is seminal for any [Christian ed] adult education course. I use it in an adult ed class and my twentysomething students considered it their favorite text of their learning career.
