Publishers Description

We are all aging. We are each a spoke on the great wheel of life, part of the ongoing cycle of growth. In "Aging," Henri J.M. Nouwen and Walter J. Gaffney share some moving and inspirational thoughts on what aging means (and "can" mean) to all of us, whether we're in our youth, middle age, or later years.
Enhanced by some eighty-five photographs depicting various scenes from life and nature, this book shows how to make the later years a source of hope rather than a time of loneliness -- a way out of darkness into the light. "Aging," the authors write, "is not a reason for despair, but a basis of hope, not a slow decaying, but a gradual maturing, not a fate to be undergone but a chance to be embraced." And they remind us of our responsibility to incorporate the aged into the fabric of our own lives -- helping them become teachers again so they may help "us" repair the fragmented connections between generations.
"Aging" shows us all how to start fulfilling our lives by giving to others, "so that when we leave this world, we can be what we have given." It is a warm, beautiful, and caring book: a simple reaffirmation of the promise of Him, who by His aging and death brought new life to this world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Spiritual View of Aging  Nov 4, 2006
Found this to be a positive, spiritual approach to aging. Better than most I've read.
a powerful book  Jun 10, 2005
I agree with the previous reviewer that this book is a celebration of aging, but I'd also call attention to how incisive it is about aging as suffering in our society: and how convincing I found it on replacing despair with quiet exultation. Henri Nouwen always moves me with the deep simplicity of his writing. And the beautiful photographs intervene effectively in the text.
Celebrating Aging  Feb 3, 2000
A celebration of aging in words and photographs. We are all aging. This book is for all of us. It is an inspirational look at how we can start wherever we are in life to make our own aging meaningful.
