• The Joy of Ageing

We do not lose heart.

Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner

nature is being renewed day by day.

2 Corinthians 4:16

Though ageing can be a painful, stressful time for many people, Brian Gallagher finds consolation in a new perspective on life, as he ages. The book reflects on the joys and the struggles, the memories and the dreams as we grow older. Brian finds a tempered joy even in the inevitable diminishment of ageing. He writes from his own experience and after many years of listening to others as a spiritual guide. This book offers a clear Christian approach to ageing: it is a major contribution to a spirituality of ageing.

This book is a treasure, to be read again and again. – Marlene McGrath, Heart of Life Centre, Melbourne

This is a wonderful little book, a real gem… – Noel Mansfield msc
