Notes



The last years of life can be joyful and fulfilling. But for some, aging ^is a challenge-joy and aging are seldom linked together. Despite the difficulties, ^Dr. Sweeting has discovered many unexpected joys in his senior years and shares ^them in this insightful and easy-to-read book for the Builder Generation.


Since only an untimely death can keep us from growing old, it is ^the better part of wisdom for us to decide in advance that we will both welcome ^and enjoy that stage of our lives. The book you hold in your hands will help all ^of us to live our lives to the fullest and make the best of all the days God gives ^us. Dr. Sweeting is uniquely qualified to write on this subject. He is convinced ^that retirement is only a time when we are redirected by God to serve Him in other ^ways. What impressed me most is this book's practicality: here we have sensible ^advice about everything from laughter to nutrition to money matters. Best of all, ^it breathes the optimism that should characterize all of God's children, even in ^their old age. Read this book and pass it along to a friend. Dr. Erwin Lutzer, Moody ^Church, Chicago Following Jesus is a life-long journey. So, if you want someone ^to help guide you in the abundant life for all seasons, then read this book. Dr. ^George Sweeting is a wise leader, teacher, and servant of Christ. His words will ^inspire you and motivate you to live a fulfilling and faithful life.

It is great to know that there is ^a resource like The Joys of Successful Aging to help us maximize, for time ^and eternity, our remaining days on earth.
-Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor, ^Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship; president, The Urban Alternative


Aging is ^like climbing above the tree line on a high mountain.  Everything is more difficult ^but the exquisite exhilaration of getting there is nearly indescribable.  George ^Sweeting's superb report from the highlands gives every climber a leg-up for the ^journey.

Dr. Howard G. Hendricks, Distinguished Professor; chairman, Center ^for Christian Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary


With maturity, grace, ^and wisdom, Dr. Sweeting shows us all how to "be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, ^and faithful in prayer" as we all get a little older.
