Billy Graham, world-renowned preacher and evangelist, notes that as a Christian he was taught how to die but not how to grow old. Graham never expected to live into his nineties because of health issues. Now that he has, he wants to encourage both young and old to explore biblical guidelines for walking with God and examples of elderly people whom God blessed and used to further the coming of his kingdom. Graham’s realistic portrayal of the challenges of old age is balanced with a hopeful, faith-filled picture of God’s purpose for each person, no matter what age. (Thomas Nelson)
