Spiritual Growth in a Time of Change

Tony Horsfall

A couple of years ago, someone asked if I could recommend some good reading material on midlife. At the time I didn't know of any, so I am grateful that Tony Horsfall has now provided an excellent book on this topic.

When I hear the word 'midlife', I expect it to be followed by 'crisis'. This book is a refreshing change, focusing instead on the spiritual growth which can take place between the ages of forty and sixty. Tony provides useful reflection questions at the end of each chapter which help promote this growth.

Within days of starting this book, I was already recommending it to mission workers. This book helps us make the most of our forties and fifties, and prepares us for entering future years well so that the 'second half can be the best half'.
