In Praise of Old Guys
5 in stock
Old guys are cool, and you need them in your life. Skinny jeans and a trendy tattoo aren't going to cut it when it comes to faithful ministry over the long haul. In Praise of Old Guys is a plea for meaningful mentoring relationships within the local church between young guys who don't know as much as they think they do, and old guys who have wisdom that only comes with years of life and experience.
“I wish it had come out earlier—say, thirty years ago. This book may be small but its potential for good is incalculable.”
--- Dr. Conrad Mbewe, Pastor, Kabwata Baptist Church
"This book has been written specifically for young pastors but I believe any young man who has some leadership potential in the church will benefit greatly from this short read. The authors (both named Nicolas – or is it Nicholas…?) drive home a very simple point – young guys need old guys. A friend of mine is fond of saying that he will listen attentively to anyone who has been in pastoral ministry for 40+ years as they have a proven track record, and really, it’s not that easy to be faithful for so long! That is the sentiment of this book. Young men: get it, read it, find an old guy."
-- Thomas Eglinton
