"I never thought I would live to be this old."

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 this side of Heaven as he covers the importance 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
- Understanding our glorious hope

"In this book I invite you to explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God's point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day. I pray that you and I may learn what it means not only to grow older, but, with God's help, to grow older with grace."

But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

?Acts 20:24 (ESV)

Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life,? says Billy Graham, known by many as God's Ambassador. ?I would have never guessed what God had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will not forsake me the last mile of the way.?

In Nearing Home this man of faith?now in his nineties?explores the challenges of aging while gleaning foundational truths from Scripture. Billy Graham invites us to journey with him as he considers the golden years while anticipating the hope of being reunited with his wife, Ruth, in his heavenly home that eclipses this world. ?When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice,? says the author. ?Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.?

Join Billy Graham as he shares the challenges of fading strength but still standing strong in his commitment to finishing life well.


?Explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God's point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.?

Billy Graham

Hailed as the world's preacher, the late Billy Graham had a career spanning over half a century. He preached the Gospel to more people in a live-audience format than anyone else in history - more than 210 million people, in more than 185 countries and territories through various meetings, including Mission World and Global Mission.

Born William Franklin Graham, Jr. in Charlotte, North Carolina, 17 November 1918, he entered the ministry in 1943 and soon began conducting evangelistic crusades. In 1950, he founded The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which has sponsored crusades and produced radio and television programs as well as films.

Dr. Graham wrote many books, a number of which became bestsellers. His autobiography, Just As I Am, published in 1997, achieved a "triple crown", appearing simultaneously on the three top best-seller lists in one week.

Dr. Graham passed away 21 February 2018.

Words of wisdom
4 stars By Michael, Jul 09 2012
I really enjoyed reading this book.  It was a lot like sitting down with a wise man as he shares with you what the Bible says is important in life.  Billy Graham does a great job of showing how these biblical principles are worked out in life, especially in planning how to leave a godly legacy.  There are heaps of quotes from the Bible, which are very helpful.  But he doesn't just look at reading the Bible, prayer and going to church.  He looks at work, relationships, finances and health.  Graham also demonstrates the need for younger and older people to be patient with each other and look for ways to enrich each other's lives.  This is something that is rarely discussed and I thought was really valuable.  Whether you are young or old, this book is relevant with lots of wisdom on how to honour God with your life.
