About the Book

There is hope in Alzheimer's disease, but it isn't where most people look for it...

Any form of dementia is terrifying and lonely for both the one suffering it and for those close to them. How do our relationships with those we love change with loss of memory or clarity of thought? What happens to our relationship with God?

For those suffering from early-stage Alzheimer's, for their friends and family, community and church, this book will help you understand the disease itself, how to love and care for those affected by it, and how to see the hope that's greater than it: we may forget, but God always remembers.

With pastoral tenderness and gospel confidence, Dr. Benjamin Mast shares his expertise on the subject and displays the power of the gospel that remains intact even when memory fades. Second Forgetting provides:

  • Up-to-date answers to common questions about the disease and its effect on personal identity and faith.
  • Personal stories of those affected and the loved ones who care for them and what their experiences were like--where they found hope and how they most needed support.
  • Practical suggestions for how the church can come alongside families and those struggling or hurting.

When a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, they face great uncertainty, knowing that they can expect to live their remaining years with increasing confusion and progressively greater reliance upon other people to care for them. Dr. Mast will help you see how Alzheimer's disease cannot have the final say on God's unforgotten children.
