Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The bumper sticker reads, "We're spending our children's inheritance." Sure, it's fine for retired people to enjoy themselves after a lifetime of toil. Robert Wicks, reminds us, however, that our wisdom years are a time in which we can offer ourselves to others in ways that may differ from earlier in life but which are equally worthwhile. In the three sections "Praying," "Caring," and "Nurturing," Wicks teaches a simple yet many-faceted way to maintain meaning, hope, and joy in a spiritual life. This is an inspirational and instructional book for the reader who knows that life is a journey of learning and loving. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Feels like having an intense conversation with a passionate friend. -- Kathleen Fischer

It is good to know that Wicks has shared his wisdom with us. -- Liguorian

Just as the enduring music may seem deceptively simple, so the positive message in this book has a lasting quality. -- Journal of Religious Gerontology --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Robert Wicks offers the reader a clean way to begin the process of deepening one's spiritual life in a meaningful, yet simple, way. Rather than creating guilt feelings and stumbling blocks, the reader is skillfully guided through simple instructions and exercises to discover that life can be meaningful, and that God is real! Though some evidence of his choice of churches appear throughout, this is a book every Christian can learn from...and make changes that are beneficial in one's life.

Excellent concise book on how to prepare spiritually for the third part of our life. Not only should we prepare financially for retirement but the author shows us how to prepare spiritually for this time in our lives. Wick shows us how to get started and continue on this process of self discovery and finding fulfillment in God and ourselves.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to gain understanding and contentment as they approach the senior part of their lives.
