New Billy Graham Book Encourages Christians To Finish The Race

Billy Graham hasn’t written a new book in more than five years. But aging Christians looking for wise words of advice from the beloved evangelist can look forward to a new release in October that answers specific questions they may have as they prepare to finish their race.

Graham has penned Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well. In the text, Graham shares his personal experience of growing older, but also teaches some important lessons on how to view our time here on earth.

Graham says the Bible makes it clear that God has a specific reason for keeping us here. So what is His purpose for these years, and how can we align our lives with it? How can we not only learn to cope with the fears and struggles and growing limitations we face but actually grow stronger inwardly in the midst of these difficulties?

“The best way to meet the challenges of old age is to prepare for them now, before they arrive,” says Graham. “I invite you to explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment—and even joy—that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God’s point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.”

Graham's publisher, Matt Baugher, vice president and publisher at Thomas Nelson, calls Nearing Home one of the most important works Graham has ever written and one of his most vulnerable.

“Time catches up to all of us,” Baugher says. “At his age, with all that has come before, he is in a unique position to guide all of us on what it means to finish well in this life. God bless Billy Graham.”
