As the life span increases, a biblical reflection on aging is
needed and welcomed. Written in an engaging style, the work
combines careful and original reflection on a wide spectrum of both
familiar and overlooked themes of the Old and New Testaments, with
original applications to contemporary issues. Those in the autumn
of life will find hope here, as will all who cherish and care for
the aged in their midst.
