    I cannot recommend these authors to any "born from above" bible believing Christian. These two authors, whether they are collaborating or writing independently, are following another Christ who is served through mystical energy, mystical contemplation, and good works. There is nothing noted concerning Jesus Christ's atoning death to pay the wages of our sin- which is death. Do not be misled by a false gospel.

    I am a Sr. adult leader in my church. This book was given to me and i have used it in devotion times with my Sr. adults

    It is a very encouraging and thought provoking book for those of us in the last third of life here on earth. It makes a very nice gift too.

    We baby boomers are entering the last third of our life. Our life is changing. Our circumstances are changing.

    Thibault and Morgan believe that experiencing the last third of life, whether hale or frail, will gain meaning and joy when experienced in relation to God. They have written short meditations on some of the best ways they have found to know, love, serve, and enjoy God and one another in the last third of life.

    They use the term "pilgrimage" to indicate a life of meaningful intent and spiritual intensity. The latter part of life can be an intentional move toward God.

    They cover seven topics, or "gates." I am going to list just a few of the meditations from each of the seven topics.

    Facing Aging and Dying: dealing with life no longer filled with accomplishments, changing interests, contemplating death.

    Living with Limitations: dealing with balance or vision or hearing loss, downsizing possessions.

    Doing Inner Work: willingness to forgive, gratitude, wearing masks.

    Living In and Out of Community: dealing with fewer friends, moving, needing care.

    Prayer and Contemplation: Lectio Divina, living with uncertainty, writing a letter to God.

    Redeeming Loss and Suffering: reinterpreting suffering as an invitation to draw closer to God, lessons from Gethsemane.

    Leaving a Legacy: how you want to be remembered.

    I found this to be a valuable little book. The thoughts are short and work perfectly to read one a day. The authors have provided good reflection questions at the end of each meditation. This book would make a great choice for a reading group or Sunday School class consisting of older people.

    This book has given me much to think about, now that I have entered into that classification of "retired."

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
