Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well | [Billy Graham]

Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well

Scripture is filled with examples of men and women whom God used late in life, often with great impact—Noah, Abraham, Moses, Elizabeth, and Anna, to name a few. They were ordinary men and women who discovered that the latter years of life can be some of the most rewarding and fulfilling. “For them, growing older wasn’t something to be denied or dreaded;” says Billy Graham, “it was to be embraced as part of God’s plan for their lives.” Billy Graham’s life and ministry have been dedicated to the here and now but always with a happy-ever-after in view.

Publisher's Summary

Scripture is filled with examples of men and women whom God used late in life, often with great impact—Noah, Abraham, Moses, Elizabeth, and Anna, to name a few. They were ordinary men and women who discovered that the latter years of life can be some of the most rewarding and fulfilling. “For them, growing older wasn’t something to be denied or dreaded;” says Billy Graham, “it was to be embraced as part of God’s plan for their lives.” Billy Graham’s life and ministry have been dedicated to the here and now but always with a happy-ever-after in view. In this moving narrative he reflects on his life and contemplates what God still has in store for him. He also shares how he has learned to deal with grief, uncertainty, and loss by focusing on the promises found in the Bible.

“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

    Story
    "I love this old man"
    Would you listen to Nearing Home again? Why?

    I would. I've listened twice already


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nearing Home?

    Hard to say, but I liked how Billy Graham says that he had spent his life learning
    how to die well, but no one had taught how to live as an old man

    So many nuggets of encouragement and humorous wisdom


    Have you listened to any of Robert Lake’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My biggest reaction to this book was great relief
    If a fella like Billy Graham can struggle with aging but keep his new weaknesses and frustrations in perspective, I can do it too.
    He calls for older Christians to be examples of how to live well,, spiritually and emotionally right to the end
    Our society needs the example


    Any additional comments?

    Glad to have an Elder to respect and trust

    Story
    "Practical, Spiritual lessons learned and shared."

    Anything Billy Graham writes is based on Biblical principles and personal experience. Therefore, I would take it in and learn from his teachings. Billy is an honest writer and speaker.

    What he writes about in this book, most people just don't want to talk about. But, as usual, Billy Graham meets issues head on. He has a gentle but strong way of presenting to the reader or listener.

    I would read anything the man writes.

    Story
    "Love Billy Graham - narrator detract from the book"
    Would you try another book from Billy Graham and/or Robert Lake?

    I was unable to finish the Book. I just couldn't stand Robert Lakes voice. I also allowed my mother of 87 years to hear it, and she also didn't care for Robert Lakes voice.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I felt that Robert Lakes wanted to emulate Billy Graham with no success. He should stay with western books.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    First time I purchased an Audible book of Billy Graham. I will go back to Books a Million and purchase the hard copy from now on.
