Book Description

Oct. 18 2011

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.”

3.0 out of 5 stars A Lighter Read than Expected May 17 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While I did enjoy reading the book I didn't feel that I got any great revelations from it which I think I was hoping to achieve. Only being middle aged I read the book to see if I was on track for finishing the race with a sense of pleasure and accomplishment. I found the book mostly to be about Billy and his late wife and although I did find that touching I was expecting more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Billy Graham Sept. 29 2014
Typical Billy Graham,
He still has a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ and is unwavering in his trust, but still honest in his challenges with old age

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you are nearing retirement Dec 5 2011
This book is a kind of guide book to retirement - how to think about how you can continue to contribute, how to react with grace and humour to the aches and pains and loss of strength and stamina. It also had some tender and funny stories about Ruth and he sweetly talked about missing her every day. I had expected it to be a book about "lessons learned over a lifetime". It isn't. Those that would enjoy it most are people are retired or close to retirement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearing Home - Life, Faith, and Finishing Well Nov. 27 2011
Look back into the history of Christianity, you'll find one of the heroes of the Christian faith still living today. He once sought to be a professional baseball player, to hit a home-run and run the bases, yet God had different plans for him. Nearing Home is a memoir and a monument of Billy Graham and his journey as he prepares for eternity. No man would have thought that his desire to fill stadiums would come true in an entirely different way, attracting thousands to the foot of the Cross. The great evangelist has lived to see his son Franklin Graham take the reins of his ministry, and he takes the time to write his book on finishing well, planning for retirement, and living a life of wisdom by preparing for our final days on earth.

Personally I really enjoyed reading the book, there were some parts that don't directly apply to me because of my age, however I still took them into consideration for future planning. If it wasn't Billy Graham there's a good chance I wouldn't have wanted the book. The reason I've flipped through the pages and continued to read was because I was granted the privilege to view the life memories of one of my personal heroes and inspirations. He details in his book some memories of Ruth Graham, his wife who is now with the Lord, and reading such memories provides the reader with the vision of what this great man of faith has gone through, what he is feeling, and what he awaits. Though it is not a book I would readily recommend, it is a book suitable for older audiences and those interested in the life of evangelist Billy Graham.

I've received this complimentary book from Thomas Nelson Publishing House through the Book Sneeze program in exchange for a review. A positive review was not required and the views expressed in my review are strictly my own.
