Improving with Age celebrates the uniqueness of experience, ideas and energy aging believers bring to ministry. It challenges this generation to step away from the sidelines and fully participate in personal and church ministries. Stuart and Jill Briscoe offer both humorous and biblical encouragement to the mature believer and tackle issues such as fear and isolation that often come with the aging process. Each chapter includes real-life strategies and reflection questions that will help mature Christians embrace their present life stage and use their wisdom and gifts for the building of God’s kingdom.

Books4JesusBrookfield, WIAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5For Anyone Who has had a Birthday!October 12, 2016Books4JesusBrookfield, WIAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This is a great book for anyone who has had a birthday! Stuart has written the chapters and Jill follows up with points to ponder, journaling questions and a reflection. A beautiful mix. The information is very helpful to those of a certain age and there is a lot to be gleaned about not sitting on the sidelines.
But, what about those of us who are still young? There is an incredible section where Stuart delves into the book of Philemon in which Paul describes himself as an old man writing to his dear friend about a former slave, Onesimus. Paul has given shelter to this runaway slave who learns from Paul and becomes useful to him to the point that Paul refers to him as his very heart. We can become Onesimuses to older people, becoming useful to them and learning from their years of wisdom.
Stuart also points out that many seniors who have given sacrificially to their church for decades feel marginalized, traumatized and parked on the sidelines. He encourages churches to minister to the seniors in their midst and encourage the seniors to reach out to their friends and neighbors without faith in Christ.
No matter where you are in the aging process, you will enjoy Stuart and Jills insight.
