What does it truly mean to grow old gracefully?

Thinning hair and failing eyesight reveal the inescapable truth that we are only getting older. The world tells us to relax. Slow down. Take it easy. Amuse ourselves.

We are out of the rat race – and onto the shelf.

Is that all there is for us as we age?

Much-loved author J. I. Packer – now in his eighties – offers us a compelling vision for lifelong learning, wholehearted service, and running the race until the end, despite all the challenges that come with ageing.

Packer’s pastoral words and personal example encourage us to press on towards the upward call of God with endurance and grace. As our powers of body and memory grow weaker, our hope of glory can remain strong – enabling us to finish our lives with joy and glorify Jesus, no matter how old we are.


J. I. Packer (DPhil, Oxford University) serves as the Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology at Regent College. He is the author of numerous books, including the classic best-seller Knowing God. Packer served as general editor for the English Standard Version Bible and as theological editor for the ESV Study Bible.
