Join Billy Graham as he shares the challenges of fading strength but still standing strong in his commitment to finishing life well.

Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life," said Billy Graham, known by many as God's Ambassador. "I would have never guessed what God had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will not forsake me the last mile of the way."

Nearing Home, written by Billy Graham in his nineties, explores the challenges of aging while gleaning foundational truths from Scripture. Billy Graham invites us to journey with him as he considers the golden years while anticipating the hope of being reunited with his wife, Ruth, in his heavenly home that eclipses this world. "When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice," said the author. "Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ."

But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. --Acts 20:24 (ESV)

"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

Dr. Graham is an icon in the Christian World, and his wisdom and insights in this book are timeless. As a retiree, I found many helpful topics to encourage me as I am on this new journey in my life. This book is liberally backed up with pertinent Bible references to reinforce these life-changing topics. I highly recommend this book to those who want a new perspective and new outlook on life.

Brilliant read.
Pastor Billy Graham is full of Wisdom, good council and all backed up with words from the Bible.

Despite being aimed at retirees I personally found this book relevant to all ages.

Highly recommend this as a read.
