Our age lives for the present. Christians look forward to the future. Our age exalts youth. God calls us to respect the elderly. Our age idolizes health. The Bible says that despite illness now, we will have glorified bodies in the new heavens and the new earth. Our age fears death. For Christians, it is the entrance to the immediate presence of Christ. This beautifully presented anthology gathers together some of the hymns and Bible passages that have been of most comfort to those who are facing illness, aging and death. It also includes quotations from well-loved preachers and authors. As with any anthology, you can dip in and out and read just a section at a time.
