Nearing Home

I received a copy of Nearing Home by Billy Graham from Book Sneeze for an honest review. In this moving narrative, Billy Graham once again takes up the pen not only to share his personal experience of growing older but also teach us some important lessons on how to view our time here on Earth. He says that the Bible makes it clear that God has a specific reason for keeping us here. So what is His purpose for these years, and how can we align our lives with it? How can we not only learn to cope with the fears and struggles and growing limitations we face but actually grow stronger inwardly in the midst of these difficulties?

In what may be his most powerful message of the last decade, Billy Graham speaks to all on his side of Heaven as he covers the improtance of four key areas: Building strong foundations and understanding the gift of years, Facing life's transitions, including the passing of years, retirement, and when loved ones die, Making wise decisions, and Understanding our glorious hope.

Graham's sermons, books, travels, interviews, speeches, and ministry have changed the world. He speaks about influencing the younger generation and leaving a good memory and example. There is a lot of great advice within the covers of this book.
