People have come to expect sound advice from Johann Christoph Arnold, an award-winning author with over a million copies of his books in print in more than 20 languages.
Here he offers answers to the question: Why shouldn’t growing older be rewarding?
A pastor with an uncommon wealth of experiences and personal insights, he has counselled thousands of individuals over the last 40 years, including married couples, children and teens; addicts, prison inmates, and law enforcement officers; educators, students and the terminally ill.
Admired by such prominent spiritual and inspirational leaders as Mother Teresa, Cardinal Seán O’Malley (Archbishop of Boston), Cardinal Timothy Dolan (Archbishop of New York), Protestant theologian J.I. Packer, American folk singer Pete Seeger and many more, Arnold is widely renowned for making crucial spiritual issues accessible to both religious and non-religious readers,
Arnold shows us the spiritual riches that age has to offer. Now in his seventies, Arnold finds himself personally facing the challenges of ageing with grace.
Rich in Years covers the significant topics facing the ageing, the elderly, and their family and caregivers: accepting changes, combating loneliness, and continuing on with purpose and hope. Going beyond mere inspiration, Arnold does not shy away from such difficult topics as coping with dementia, the prospect of dying and enduring with dignity. Through faith and a true spirituality, he says, we can find acceptance and serenity.
