  • Precious Gift Of Old Age

    $14.95

    The fear of growing old is a universal burden. Here’s the book you need to ensure that you move into and through old age with grit and grace. Fr. John LaFarge shows you how to conquer any fear of aging – and how to make your golden years the best years of your life.

    At age 84, Fr. LaFarge was struck by the many advantages and blessings of aging, and he observed that modern men and women have lost touch with the traditional view of old age as the crowning summit of life. Seeing old age instead as a calamity, he says, is what makes aging such a misery for many.

    In these insightful and encouraging pages, Fr. John helps you recognize that old age has its own inherent meaning and that the wisest thing we can do when it creeps up on us is to explore this meaning and adopt a general plan of action to profit from it.

    Specifically, you will learn how to overcome loneliness and assist others who are suffering from the pains of poverty or neglect. Fr. LaFarge addresses the challenges of caring for elderly people who are too sick to live at home and require admission to nursing homes. He also clarifies the duties of the younger generations toward those in old age and how it is incumbent upon them to turn the tide of our utilitarian culture of death.

    Best of all, Fr. LaFarge affirms that old age affords more time for quiet communion with our Lord, for contemplation, and for reaching out to others to help provide for their spiritual needs. He imparts the invaluable lesson that to embrace old age is to value the opportunity to strengthen yourself on the road to eternity after a lifetime of sin. You will also discover:

    *New opportunities, dignities, and privileges that come with old age
    *How old age is a time of great strength, beauty, and resurrection
    *An attitude of thankfulness and joy that attracts others to the Faith
    *How the “greatest social power in the world” rests in old age
    *What the older and younger generations can teach each other
    *How practicing the four cardinal virtues in our senior years leads to an authentic love of God and neighbor

  • Aging Faithfully : The Holy Invitation Of Growing Older

    $16.99

    Every new year of life is an undiscovered country.

    There’s no map through our later years, and the new terrain can bring anxiety and uncertainty, when our souls are more preoccupied with what has been lost than what is to come. While our physical stamina, independence, and career fulfillment decline, each of these losses invites us to grow, inward and upward. God calls us to let go of our need for fulfillment and embrace the gift of fruitfulness so that we might be transformed in this final season of our lives.

    In Aging Faithfully, spiritual director Alice Fryling guides our walk with God in a vulnerable time, listening for his voice and responding. As we age, something unusual happens: God renews us from within, when we allow him access. As we accept our responses to the aging process, we grow closer to God and experience his grace.

    Are you open to increased hope, joy, and transformation? Would you like to grow in life-giving ways–no matter the circumstances? Do you have the courage to let go of former ways of thinking to receive love and life in new ways?

    We all age differently, and God calls each of us to new spiritual birth as we mature. Whether you are approaching the beginning, middle, or end of your senior years, you are invited. Come and be transformed.

  • Aging With Grace

    $18.99

    Aging with Grace by the Power of the Gospel

    There are many blessings that come with age: retirement, grandchildren, travel, and life experience. Today’s culture, however, marginalizes old age, often portraying it as burdensome and hopeless. Many older women can feel like an encumbrance rather than a blessing to their friends and family members. In response to these struggles, Sharon Betters and Susan Hunt encourage women to find hope through both real-life and biblical accounts of women who rediscovered gospel-rooted joy later in life. In each chapter, readers will be encouraged as they experience afresh a gospel that is big enough, good enough, and powerful enough to make every season of life significant and glorious.

  • OH To Be 108 Again

    $13.95

    An Outskirts Press Title

    For forty years, James K. Wagner was a United Methodist minister. Now that he is retired and living in community with other older people, he has found that no one ages out of asking questions about their Christian faith.

    Oh, to Be 108 Again: Aging Gracefully by Living Fully in the 4th Quarter of Life answers questions such as: Why is forgiveness so hard to do? Why is the Bible so difficult to understand? What evidence do we have of an afterlife? Is there any help in coping with grief?

    Wagner’s Spiritual and Ethical Wellness Checklist personalizes the book for each reader, and each chapter concludes with four questions for personal reflection and small group discussion.

    There are no wrinkles on one’s soul. Spiritual growth has no limitations. And with a heart that cares for others, with eyes that see beyond everyday happenings, and with a spirit in tune with the spirit of God, we will find that good things can and do happen in our later years.

  • Aging Gracefully

    $7.99

    How does the Bible instruct us as we grow older? Age gracefully, age wisely, age resolutely to the glory of God.

    There are few longings in my heart deeper than this: That God would let me live a godly, purposeful, dignified old age. I mean to encourage us both to age gracefully, to age wisely, to age resolutely to God’s glory.

    We are all aging. We are passing through time until we reach the end of our time. We soon learn that greater age brings greater sorrow but also greater joy, especially to those who are in Christ.

    To age gracefully we must age in Christ and for Christ. What does it look like to age gracefully? What do we need to be doing now to ensure we finish this race strong?

    These are questions for all Christians, young and old. Thankfully the Bible speaks clearly about how to age and how to age well. Join me in exploring what the Bible has to say about age and aging and learn how we can all hear those beautiful words, “well done, good and faithful servant.”

  • Whats Age Got To Do With It

    $16.99

    If you think that being old is about having a rocking chair and an easy life style, think again. You’re looking through the binoculars backwards. What’s Age Got To Do With It? turns the lenses the right way around and gives a clear, Scriptural view of God’s purpose for old age. When He created the universe, God set in motion times and seasons and the ageing process. Old age was part of His plan from the beginning – that people should ripen to maturity, developing wisdom through a lifetime of experience and relationship with Him, eventually enriching others with attributes that have been honed over lifetimes. But instead of contributing as God intended, many see themselves as “useless” and are afraid of being a burden. Ageism has destroyed their self-image and expectations, and they give up and become passive – and we are all the losers. Here are stories of many people living full, purpose-driven lives well into their 90s and even 100s. For example, you’ll meet the lay preacher who wrote a book at 100 years of age because he couldn’t stand long enough to preach, and the 95-year-old who organized more Christian support from local churches for his care home, as well as many ordinary people who are making a difference to the lives of those around them. What’s Age Got To Do With It? shows how to take off the reins and live the way God intended from the beginning.

  • On Broken Pieces

    $15.99

    In the 27th chapter of the book of Acts, Luke describes how the apostle Paul and his shipmates endure a storm-tossed shipboard voyage to Rome. They commit the ship to the sea and themselves into the hands of God. The ship is broken into pieces–not to destroy them, but to save them, for some reached the safety of shore on planks and debris from the broken ship. They came in on broken pieces.

    Award-winning author Joshua A. McClure was compelled by a vision from God to share encouraging words with all who desire release from their prisons of despair, to the land of hope and freedom. Here he shares 32 years of transforming messages from The Pleasant Street Baptist Church Pulpit after frequent encounters with a loving, caring God. The sermons collected within these pages are simple, clear, and personal. It is Joshua’s hope and prayer that God will use these simple words to resurrect the hearts of those who have been waiting and longing for him.

    Additional Info
    This book will make no attempt to defend God. . . . If you are looking for a book that boasts triumphantly of conquest over a great enemy, or gives a detached philosophical analysis that neatly solves an absorbing problem, this isn’t it. Too often the Christian attitude toward suffering is characterized by a detached academic appeal to God’s sovereignty, as if suffering were a game or a math problem. Or maybe we expect that since God is good, everything will just work out all right somehow. But where then is honest lament? Aren’t we shortchanging believers of the riches of the Christian teaching about suffering? In Embodied Hope Kelly Kapic invites us to consider the example of our Lord Jesus. Only because Jesus has taken on our embodied existence, suffered alongside us, died, and been raised again can we find any hope from the depths of our own dark valleys of pain. As we look to Jesus, we are invited to participate not only in his sufferings, but also in the church, which calls us out of isolation and into the encouragement and consolation of the communal life of Christ. Drawing on his own family’s experience with prolonged physical pain, Kapic reshapes our understanding of suffering into the image of Jesus, and brings us to a renewed understanding of-and participation in-our embodied hope.

  • Loving Later Life

    $20.50

    Nobody enjoys growing old. We normally fear our own aging and generally do not love old people — they remind us that death is inescapable, the body frail, and social status transitory. In “Loving Later Life” Frits de Lange shows how an ethics of love can acknowledge and overcome the fear of aging and change our attitude toward the elderly.De Lange reframes the biblical love command this way: We must care for the aging other as we care for our own aging selves. We can encourage positive self-love by embracing life as we age, taking good care of our own aging bodies, staying good friends with ourselves, and valuing the last season of life. When we cultivate this kind of self-love, we are released from our aversion to growing old and set free to care about others who are aging — our parents, our relatives, and others in their final season of life.”

  • 2nd Forgetting : Remembering The Power Of The Gospel During Alzheimers Dise

    $14.99

    Charles is 78 years old and there is much he cannot remember. He cannot remember the names of his children, why he lives in a nursing home, or even whether he ate breakfast today. His forgetting causes confusion, and in his fear and uncertainty he sometimes lashes out at those who try to care for him. But when someone reads a favorite Psalm he quickly joins in, reciting each cherished word. When he hears an old hymn of faith, his hand slowly raises and he breathes out each word quietly, his face reflecting a peace that passes all understanding. Alzheimer’s disease has been described as the ‘defining disease’ of the baby boomer generation. Millions of Americans will spend much of their retirement years either caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or experiencing its effects on their lives firsthand. When a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, they face great uncertainty, knowing that they can expect to live their remaining years with increasing confusion and progressively greater reliance upon other people to care for them. As the disease advances it seems to overwhelm a person, narrowing their focus and leading them to forget critical truths about the Lord, their life with him, and his promises. Through the personal stories of those affected and the loved ones who care for them, Dr. Benjamin Mast highlights the power of the gospel for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Filled with helpful, up-to-date information, Dr. Mast answers common questions about the disease and its effect on personal identity and faith as he explores the biblical importance of remembering and God’s commitment to not forget his people. In addition, he gives practical suggestions for how the church can come alongside families and those struggling, offering help and hope to victims of this debilitating disease. If you are a Christian who knows or loves someone with Alzheimer’s disease, have recently been diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s disease, or are a pastor or ministry leader seeking to better understand and minister to people with Alzheimer’s disease this book will encourage you with the good news of God’s faithfulness and the future hope he calls us to.

  • God Me And Being Very Old

    $35.99

    Death and dying are a constant presence in the life and work of care homes. Residents stay, on average, around 20 months (nursing homes) or 36 months(residential/social care homes/assisted living) and die there. The care home is therefore the setting for the last major event of each residents life. Yet these experiences of the very old at the close of their lives have received remarkably little attention either in practice or in research. Nor have churches and theologians given their oldest members anything like the concern for their spiritual wellbeing that they give to the young. The heart of this book will aim to give voice to something similar from some of the oldest old as they reflect on their pilgrimage of faith from the perspective of extreme old age (over 90). In particular the authors explore what this perspective has to say to the other members of their faith communities, particularly in terms of the things that are seen as being of importance and value. The particular significance of reflections arising from the experience of approaching death will be explored. This is one area where religious thinking is often out of step with contemporary imagery and language.

  • I Love Growing Older But Ill Never Grow Old

    $15.99

    Growing older is a process. Growing old is a conclusion. If you’re growing older you see some hope because you have perspective and you keep learning. If you’ve grown old, you may cynically think that times have never been as bas as they are now, and that they can only get worse.

    This book is about learning how to “make peace with where you are right now.” It’s about learning from the past and then moving past it. It’s about growing – personally, spiritually, and in our relationships with God and with others. If we think properly about growing older we’ll never have to grow old.

  • Should We Live Forever

    $19.50

    In Should We Live Forever? Christian ethicist Gilbert Meilaender puzzles over the implications of the medical advances that have lengthened the human life span, wrestling with what this quest for living longer means for our conception of living well and completely. As he points out in his introduction, “That we often desire, even greedily desire, longer life is clear; whether what we desire is truly desirable is harder to say.” The six chapters of this book take multiple perspectives on issues surrounding aging and invite readers to consider whether “indefinitely more life” is something worth pursuing and, if humans are created for life with God, whether longer life will truly satisfy our underlying hunger.

  • When Your Parent Becomes Your Child

    $15.99

    Hope and inspiration for helping parents through the aging process and the decline that comes with dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.Dementia is one of the world’s fastest growing illnesses. Without a major medical breakthrough, the estimated 24 million people living with some form of the disease could easily jump as high as 84 million by the year 2040. It is rapidly becoming everyone’s problem.

    When Your Parent Becomes Your Child tells the story of one family who reluctantly began to recognize and then deal with the common issues found in caring for their elderly loved one:
    memory loss
    physical decline
    personal hygiene
    dangers of driving and living alone
    aberrant behavior
    uncharacteristic attitudes

    As he chronicles his own mom’s degenerative condition, New York Times bestselling writer Ken Abraham not only educates but offers inspiration to help readers cope with and manage their family circumstances.

    With humor and spiritual reminders of God’s command to honor our parents, Abraham encourages readers, helping them shoulder the additional, often difficult responsibilities. And though patients will not recover this side of heaven, he suggests many practical things that families can do to make the experience safer, kinder, and more endurable for everyone involved.Helping our loved ones live out their remaining years in dignity paves the way for a rewarding and enriching experience for our families, and for the people whose lives they have affected for all eternity.

    2. Finding God’s Purpose In Aging
    3. Overcoming The Temptations Of Aging
    4. Discovering The Joy Of Aging

    Additional Info
    Old age isn’t a punishment – it’s a gift from God, Missy Buchanan says in Aging Faithfully. She believes it’s all a matter of how people choose to view aging. If they focus on negative images of growing old, they will likely miss the treasures right in front of them. But if they fix their eyes on God, they will discover the abiding joy that can accompany a long life.

    This book is divided into four weeks, each with a particular theme:
    1. Accepting the challenges of aging
    2. Finding God’s purpose in aging
    3. Overcoming the temptations of aging
    4. Discovering the joy of aging

    Each daily reading supports the weekly theme with a scripture passage, meditation, prayer and suggestions for deeper thought or practical application. Sunday of each week offers the reader a time to celebrate the culmination of the week’s readings.

    Reflection questions at the back of the book may be used for small-group discussion or as another opportunity for individuals to explore the topics more fully.

    Readers who take time to complete these 28 days of prayer will discover how to age both joyfully and faithfully. Aging Faithfully may be just the resource some persons need to see aging as a positive experience instead of fearing it.

  • Finishing Well : The Adventure Of Life Beyond Halftime

    $15.99

    Author Bob Buford called them “code breakers.” They are people age 40 and older who have pioneered the art of finishing well in these modern times, and who can teach us to do the same, starting today.

    Buford sought out 60 of these trailblazers-including Peter Drucker, Roger Staubach, Jim Collins, Ken Blanchard, and Dallas Willard-and has recorded their lively conversations in these pages so that they can serve as “mentors in print” for all of us.

    “Twenty years from now,” Buford writes, “the rules for this second adulthood as a productive season of life may be better known. But for now, we’re out across the frontier breaking new ground.”

    Buford gives you a chance to sit at the feet of these pioneers and learn the art of finishing well so you can shift into a far more fulfilling life now, no matter your age, and pursue a lasting significance that will be a legacy for future generations.

Can you imagine how this would change your life-and the life of the one you love? This book tells how one couple faced this situation. It started as a daily journal with the idea that it would be very private and a short-term journal till his wife came home where they could live a normal life again. She was in a hospital first and then in a nursing home. She was away from home for almost ten months. Her husband took her out from the nursing home as often as possible. Sometimes they were able to spend a few hours at their home. Then she was able to go home where she lived with her husband for a little over two and a half years. This was a total of almost three and a half years from the beginning of her illness till the date of her death. D L Bennett, who compiled these notes, says he just wrote it like they lived it.

  • Some Things You Just Have To Live With

    $16.95

    Everybody figures it out sooner or later: Even in a Botox world that promises eternal youth, some things-from aches and pains to wrinkles, from menopause to the empty nest-you just have to live with. But despite the challenges, those who are reaching middle age-yesterday’s Baby Boomers-might not want to turn back the clock. Instead, as their bodies change and their priorities shift, they’re looking to cull wisdom from their experience and find spiritual meaning in their re-examined lives. In Some Things You Just Have to Live With, author Barbara Cawthorne Crafton explores the “spilled milk” of our lives, the physical changes our bodies endure, and the new and energizing purpose we can discover by plunging into the middle of life in a deeper-and sometimes mystifying-relationship with God. A wonderful storyteller, Crafton writes with humor and pathos rather than a heavy hand, allowing readers to see themselves and their own lives in the unfolding pages. Some Things You Just Have to Live With is a source of inspiration-and smiles-to those navigating the turbulent waters of the middle of life.

  • 10 Gospel Promises For Later Life

    $13.99

    “May you live to be 120!” This old Jewish birthday blessing leads to a question Jane Marie Thibault regularly asks attendees at her workshops and retreats: Would you accept the gift of 120 years with joy and gratefulness, or would your response depend on your circumstances?

    As Thibault is now an older adult herself and has been working with older adults as a clinical gerontologist for nearly 30 years, she has been confronted by the challenge many older adults face in relating to the message of the Gospel in this later season of life.

    The material for 10 Gospel Promises for Later Life emerged as Thibault began to explore questions spawned by this blessing and compiled a list of ten challenges aging presents and the fears that accompany these challenges: fear of being left alone at the end of life, fear of not being good enough to go to heaven, fear of being a burden to others, fear that there’s nothing to live for now that the best years are over, difficulty believing in an afterlife, regretting missed opportunities to use talents, fear that it’s too late to fix relationships, feeling unneeded, wishing life had been different, and fear of extended suffering.

    Thibault then took these fears to the Gospel in a spirit of prayer and meditation. As she read she asked whether the Gospel speaks to the fears of aging, whether there is any good news in the “Good News” for older adults, and whether aging as a Christian is different from aging in secular society. The message she found is that Jesus offers the promise of abundant life to the older adult. Some of the Gospel promises that emerged were:
    *We are the beloved children of God the good parent.
    *We have a mission and purpose that is lifelong.
    *As spiritual siblings, we are interdependent upon each other for mutual care and assistance.
    *Powerlessness is powerful.
    *All that is, is gift, and God will continue to provide for us.
    *Forgiveness is offered to us, but it must be shared.
    *Suffering can have meaning for ourselves and others.
    *Renewal is necessary for life; it is never too late to grow in wisdom and grace.
    *Death is not the end of life.
    *We will never be left alone; Christ is with us always.

    In each chapter Thibault addresses a particular fear, giving an example of how it has affected the daily life of a person in a negative way. She then presents a response, a promise of the Gospel. After examining the promise and discussing how it provides a message of hope in later life, she p

Lost in the Middle can help all who are confronted with life in this broken world and have lost their way. The God who seems so distant to you in this moment is actually near and active.

  • Aging Death And The Quest For Immortality Print On Demand Title

    $25.50

    A Print on Demand Title

    Aging is a fact of life, and issues surrounding it are hot. There are currently 35 million Americans over the age of sixty-five – more than ever. This demographic shift is noteworthy not only because the ranks of the elderly will continue to swell in coming years but also because it is taking place in what the editors of this book call an “ageist society,” one that increasingly loathes every facet of aging. Indeed, the ethical issues associated with aging are among the thorniest in medicine and public policy today.

    Aging, Death, and the Quest for Immortality is a timely volume by physicians, health-care professionals, pastors, and ethicists who explore the experiences, dilemmas, and possibilities associated with aging. The book opens by offering three distinct perspectives on aging; this section includes practical suggestions for dealing with retirement, disability, healing, and death. Several contributors then analyze controversial ethical issues raised by aging and health care, including medical decision-making, the moral standing of patients with dementia, health-care rationing, and assisted suicide. A third group of essays applies a theology of care to ministry to and through older adults, the counseling of seniors, and the application of palliative care. The book closes by discussing some of the emerging technologies and interest groups aimed at achieving immortality, also asking, appropriately, what insights the Christian faith brings to the discussion.

    Reflecting much wisdom and sensitivity, this book will give welcome help to care providers and to those who are themselves in the later stages of life.

  • Growing Old In Christ

    $32.50

    334 Pages

    Additional Info
    One of the hallmarks of contemporary culture is its attitude toward aging and the elderly. Youth and productivity are celebrated in today’s society, while the elderly are increasingly marginalized. This not only poses difficulties for old people but is also a loss for the young and middle-agers, who could learn much from the elderly, including what it means to grow old (and die) “in Christ.”

    “Growing Old in Christ” presents the first serious theological reflection ever on what it means to grow old, particularly in our culture and particularly as a Christian. In a full-orbed discussion of the subject, eighteen first-rate Christian thinkers survey biblical and historical perspectives on aging, look at aging in the modern world, and describe the “Christian practice of growing old.” Along the way they address many timely issues, including the medicalization of aging, the debate over physician-assisted suicide, and the importance of friendships both among the elderly and between the elderly and the young.

    Weighty enough to instruct theologians, ethicists, and professional caregivers yet accessible enough for pastors and general readers, this book will benefit anyone seeking faith-based insight into growing old.

  • Yoga And The Wisdom Of Menopause

    $15.95

    Yoga expert Suza Francina offers women a natural solution for becoming physically, emotionally and spiritually stronger.

    31.2 million women facing menopause in America are concerned by these headlines. Most women today will live over one-third of their lives post-menopausal, but what about the age-old solution of hormone replacement therapy? In 2002 the U.S. government halted a major study of hormone therapy because it increased the risk of invasive breast cancer. Now, millions of women are left wondering whether they should approach menopause without hormones, suffering from hot flashes and low sex drive or take hormones and live in fear of being another statistic. Suza Francina has a simpler solution: Yoga.

    In this practical book, Francina, a leading yogi and author of The New Yoga for People Over 50, shows how yoga can be a powerful tool to help women turn menopause into a positive and empowering experience, both physically and spiritually. Included are easy-to-follow indexed photos of yoga poses that alleviate key menopausal problems including: hormonal changes; hot flashes; irregular bleeding; fibroids; stress and anxiety; mood swings; depression and fatigue; bone loss; heart disease and cancer.

    Francina delivers a timely and truly heartening message to women: you don’t have to get weaker or depressed when facing menopause, it can truly be an empowering, restorative time.

As such, it provided the theoretical foundations for considering aging, spirituality and religion.
