Finishing Our Course With Joy

Guidance from God for Engaging with Our Aging
Written by J. I. Packer
Thinning hair, failing eyesight, and arthritic hands reveal an inescapable truth: we’re only getting older.
But that doesn’t mean we should simply sit back and take it easy. In Finishing Our Course with Joy, renowned theologian and author J. I. Packer challenges us to embrace old age as an opportunity for continued learning, careful planning, and heartfelt discipleship. Packer’s pastoral words and personal stories encourage us to press on toward the upward call of God with endurance and grace―that we might continue to glorify God in our aging and finish our lives with joy.
“Experts say that the proportion of the elderly population in the United States will grow by 80 percent in the decades to come. It is more important than ever to have a biblical mind about how we spend our latter years for God’s glory. We want to finish well (2 Tim. 4:7). And good pastors care to prepare their people to do precisely this. Finishing Our Course with Joy comes as wise, true, timely, and edifying biblical reflection and pastoral counsel on this significant subject. Dr. Packer’s book speaks to senior adults, those who love and care for them, those who will become them, and those who pastor them. As one who has had the privilege of knowing J. I. Packer since my teen years, reading these words―written from his own personal experience, communion with God, and knowledge of the Word―is poignant for me, to say the least. But that only makes the truth go in deeper. And that is good.” ―Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary
