Scripture is filled with examples of men and women whom God used late in life, often with great impact—Noah, Abraham, Moses, Elizabeth, and Anna, to name a few. They were ordinary men and women who discovered that the latter years of life can be some of the most rewarding and fulfilling. “For them, growing older wasn’t something to be denied or dreaded;” says Billy Graham, “it was to be embraced as part of God’s plan for their lives.” Billy Graham’s life and ministry have been dedicated to the here and now but always with a happy-ever-after in view. In this moving narrative he reflects on his life and contemplates what God still has in store for him. He also shares how he has learned to deal with grief, uncertainty, and loss by focusing on the promises found in the Bible.
“Explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God’s point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.” —Billy Graham

I love this old man
I would. I've listened twice already
Hard to say, but I liked how Billy Graham says that he had spent his life learning
how to die well, but no one had taught how to live as an old man
So many nuggets of encouragement and humorous wisdom
My biggest reaction to this book was great relief
If a fella like Billy Graham can struggle with aging but keep his new weaknesses and frustrations in perspective, I can do it too.
He calls for older Christians to be examples of how to live well,, spiritually and emotionally right to the end
Our society needs the example
Glad to have an Elder to respect and trust
