Aging with Grace, Grace for the Aging Mar 21, 2007
Modern scientific advances allow the body to live longer, but only ancient scriptural advice allows the soul to live wisely. Eyrich and Dabler mine the rich reserve of Scripture to develop a powerful and practical biblical theology of aging. But "The Art of Age" is more than a theology. It is theology applied to life, relevantly, creatively, and accurately.
Readers find woven throughout every section of the book vignettes, stories, and narratives that will ring true--both for the aging (and, frankly, that's all of us!) and for those who live with "senior saints." In these real life chronicles, Eyrich and Dabler insightfully engage the hearts of their readers.
To read "The Art of Aging" is to read one wise sage speaking truth into the life of another. It is to sit by the fireplace and comfortably contemplate the meaning of life, the dignity of aging, and the goodness of God. Then, it is to get up from the fireplace and enter the world empowered with Christ's resurrection power to live the rest of one's days for the glory of God and the good of others. It is to find peace in the present and hope for the (eternal) future.
But as already mentioned, "The Art of Aging" is equally an encyclopedic resource for the "sandwich generation" struggling to care for adolescent children and aging parents. This book provides concrete assistance for caring for elderly parents with wisdom and love.
