Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well


When I started in this book I couldn’t help but think that it was primarily targeted towards older people. After I finished the book I came to the conclusion that from my perspective that is the case.

I choose to read the book because of a visit that is planned to Charlotte, the hometown of Billy Graham. Over the years I have read and heard a lot of his life and achievements. Even though the book is written from his own perspective that he is nearing Home everyone can benefit from what is on the pages of this book.

I could sense the experience, the wisdom and the profound grace his speaking and writing has always been full of. Thinking about the end of your life is not something a lot of people like to do. In picking up this book and reading it you are faced with some of the tough and deep questions of life. Billy Graham has chosen to be open, frank and direct in this book. It is as the subtitle says a book about life, faith and finishing well. What struck me most is the amount of practical tips and advice in this book. And most of his advice isn’t only for elderly people. There is a truth for everyone:

Well, not all elderly people can climb behind the wheel of a dream car or get face-lifts, but we do have the choice to be content with where we are in life.

I guess that is something to think about!
