Nearing Home by Billy Graham, is not simply a book for the old, infirm, depressed or terminally ill. It is a book that contains wise advise for every reader. Yet, even so, I could not exactly relate to this book as it is intended for the senior reader. Considering I don't know if I will ever reach my 50s or 60s, I did not want to seriously consider the issues raised such as retirement and other end of life practical matters. If I wasn't a blogger, I would never take the gamble and pay $19.95 for a book that speaks about my future years- since there is no guarentee I will be able to put it to use. For those readers in their 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s or even beyond (if that is even possible) this book is sure to be empowering and enlightening, and well worth the money spent to purchase the book.
On numerous occasions the bible speaks of the importance of being aware of the etrnal reality- that life here on earth will end. The book of wisdom and ecclesiastes often speaks of the wise as being aware of the issues of mortality and death rather than the foolish who simply ignore the reality of death. Paul's letters make reference to the reality of eternal life: beyond thid physical world.
