Billy Graham's "Nearing Home" is an inspirational book about aging. I read this book, even though I am still in my 20's, because I think that it is important for us to understand that even as we become older, our purpose remains. It always seems as if the most purposeful time of our life is when we are raising children, taking care of a family, and working every day, but Graham shows us that even as life begins to slow down for us, God still has a purpose for our life. This book incorporates scripture and some of Graham's own life experiences as the backbone for his story. He also talks about practical subjects such as retirement, money, and hope. I think that this book would be a great Christmas present for the loved ones in our own lives who are nearing home, as a reminder that God still has a purpose for them in their lives, and that their journey isn't over yet. For me, it also helped me to appreciate the elderly people in my own life, and understand that they still have a God given purpose to fulfill. I would give this book a 4/5.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255

Have you noticed the long winded plot spoilers always get their books for free for a 'non biased' review? Do u ppl ever stop to consider that you are ruining a book for others? Why would we pay for a book that you just told everything about? I do not care if you got it ...
Have you noticed the long winded plot spoilers always get their books for free for a 'non biased' review? Do u ppl ever stop to consider that you are ruining a book for others? Why would we pay for a book that you just told everything about? I do not care if you got it for free from a publisher, book club or santa claus. Just stop revealing everything about the blamed book.

    Not One of Dr. Grahams Best

    Good book for couples or individuals who have not done proper planning. However, it is some what depressing for others.

    I love Billy

    I love Billy, but this book is a little depressing. It's about dying and preparing a legal will, etc. Those are things we all should do, but not exactly what I was expecting. I wanted to hear about his life and his thoughts at his age. A man his age has so much to tell us. That's my take.

    Highly recomended

    Remarkable, an in depth view of the aging process. He has a view that gives peace and assurance to growing old and to death and dying.
