    This book provides resources for anyone who has a role in providing spiritual support to someone with dementia. The bulk of it is made up of short devotions each comprising a Bible verse, some commentary, a prayer and a hymn. They are useful as a guide to the length and complexity that is reasonable when worshipping or praying with people with dementia. A few of them I could imagine using myself. Probably some people would find most of them suitable for personal use, but for me, the majority are This book provides resources for anyone who has a role in providing spiritual support to someone with dementia. The bulk of it is made up of short devotions each comprising a Bible verse, some commentary, a prayer and a hymn. They are useful as a guide to the length and complexity that is reasonable when worshipping or praying with people with dementia. A few of them I could imagine using myself. Probably some people would find most of them suitable for personal use, but for me, the majority are too far from my own theological outlook for me to feel comfortable with. There seems to be a lot of emphasis on a substitutionist interpretation of the atonement, with numerous mentions of "the blood of the Lamb" and "the wrath of God" and also too much about Satan (whose existence I have to admit to being sceptial about!) The last two devotions, "Why?" and "You are not alone" I found particularly helpful, and I can envisage that I may use them myself. I also found the literal interpretation of Bible stories, such as Enoch or Adam and Eve, off-putting, as well as the simplistic "God is guiding your every step" message. I kept wanting to shout out, "but it's not as simple as that!" On reflection, I probably need to learn to express things more simply and not to worry about missing out the complexities and nuances, if I am to speak with people with dementia. For me, the best part is the list, at the very end of the book, of practical suggestions for preparing to visit someone with dementia and for conducting oneself while in their presence.
