Billy Graham is such a remarkable man, and God has used him in ways that very few have the opportunity to experience. If you haven't read his biography Just As I Am then I encourage you to do so. I have grown up listening to Graham's sermons and reading his books, and his story has made such a huge impact on me. This man is, in my opinion, is a modern day prophet. God has used his sermons and crusades to bring millions to Jesus. If you are thinking of reading or purchasing anything by Billy, you won't regret it. Even if you think the discussion topic doesn't apply to you or your circumstances, he always puts something in his books that makes them beneficial to anyone who takes the time to read them.
This book, was about Billy's journey through accepting old age and all that comes along with it with grace, patience and faith. Though I don't have to worry about this certain trial for quite some time, I still found great encouragement in Graham's words. There are little bits and pieces that anyone, young or old could apply to their lives. I wish more people of my generation would turn to people like Billy Graham; people who have already traveled the road that we are on. Adults used to be treated with respect, and were often looked to when they were in need of wisdom. Now our elderly are often cast aside, told that they are senile and disregarded because people think they are talking just to talk. The way I see people treating their elders nowadays makes my blood boil. They obviously know something about life that we don't. Anyway, this book is a great book for anyone to read. It is pretty short, I read it in a couple of hours. I love the way the author got his points across. The way he made a point by telling  stories reminds me of how Jesus used to teach in parables, and everything that he says has scripture to back it up. I highly recommend Nearing Home to anyone and everyone.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
