Product Description

In Retiring Retirement Rodney Macready doesn’t believe retirement is a biblical concept, especially the way it's practiced in today's Western culture, with a sense of entitlement. His aim is to challenge readers to think about retirement and what the Bible has to say in relation to it. He encourages retirees to continue to be productive and contribute to the Kingdom, and challenges us to evaluate our current concept of "retirement" by exploring what the Bible says about it.

Publisher's Description

What does the Bible say about retirement? Is it part of God's purpose for every Christian's life?



The author doesn't think retirement is a biblical concept - especially the way it's practiced in today's Western culture with a sense of entitlement. His aim in this book is to challenge readers to think about retirement and what the Bible has to say in relation to it. He encourages retirees to continue to be productive and contribute to the Kingdom, even though we might not work a "9-5" anymore. He is concerned that we have simply adopted our culture's thinking about retirement without examining it to determine whether it fits with our profession to acknowledge Jesus as our King--which he feels is dangerous. We've allowed the world to squeeze us into its shape and allowed the world to dictate to us all our dreams and goals and aspirations about this increasingly lengthy period of our lives. His aim in this book is to achieve a paradigm shift--to get us thinking that retirement does not need to mean the end of productivity completely. He challenges us to evaluate our current concept of "retirement" by exploring in detail what the Bible says about it.
