What does it truly mean to grow old gracefully?
Thinning hair and failing eyesight reveal the inescapable truth that we are only getting older. The world tells us to relax. Slow down. Take it easy. Amuse ourselves.
We are out of the rat race - and onto the shelf.
Is that all there is for us as we age?
Much-loved author J. I. Packer - now in his eighties - offers us a compelling vision for lifelong learning, wholehearted service, and running the race until the end, despite all the challenges that come with ageing.
Packer's pastoral words and personal example encourage us to press on towards the upward call of God with endurance and grace. As our powers of body and memory grow weaker, our hope of glory can remain strong - enabling us to finish our lives with joy and glorify Jesus, no matter how old we are.Críticas:
A signpost to a better way ... Jesus-centred, clear as to the gospel of grace, insistent on the Bible, an easy, graceful book to read and truly a real help. --Alec Motyer, author and Bible expositor
Thank you, Dr. Packer, for your clear directives from Scripture... you challenge all of us in all our churches to continue to the end, and to use our maturity in every opportunity, with humility, and yet with fresh intensity, to please God rather than ourselves, with our focus on the Hope of Glory --Helen Roseveare, Former missionary in Congo with WEC: international speaker and author of 13 books
