Abstract or description

Although a great deal has been written on pastoral responses to dementia, some of the theological questions it raises remain relatively unexplored. In this paper, the author argues that the widespread experience of living with someone with dementia has the potential to reshape our understanding of God's relation to humanity. He goes on to survey some key contributions to the existing theological literature on this subject and so to suggest directions for further theological work.
