Thinning hair, failing eyesight and arthritic hands reveal an inescapable truth: we're only getting older. However, that doesn't mean we should simply sit back and take it easy.
In Finishing Our Course with Joy, renowned theologian and author J. I. Packer challenges us to embrace old age as an opportunity for continued learning, careful planning and heartfelt discipleship. Packer's pastoral words and personal stories encourage us to press on toward the upward call of God with endurance and grace - that we might continue to glorify God in our ageing and finish our lives with joy.
"... I'm at that stage in life where 'engaging' with my 'aging' has become increasingly more urgent. And I can't think of anyone who can provide more helpful and encouraging insight than J. I. Packer. Don't wait until you're sixty or seventy to read this book. Start now and finish well."?
