Rich in Years: Finding Peace and Purpose in a Long Life

Why shouldn’t growing older be rewarding? Learn what you can do to make the most of your journey.
By: Johann Christoph Arnold
Nov. 4, 2013 - PRLog -- (WALDEN, NY) Contrary to the popular wisdom of our ad-driven culture, pastor Johann Christoph Arnold suggests that trying to stay young is the worst way to grow old. In his eleventh book, he shows that people who accept aging and the changes it brings enjoy happier, healthier lives than those who fight against it.

Arnold knows growing older is no picnic. Now in his seventies, the world-traveling writer and speaker finds himself personally facing the limitations, indignities, regrets, and unspoken fears that come with aging. But he also knows, from decades of pastoral experience, what older people can do to make the journey less daunting and more fulfilling.

In Rich in Years, Arnold tells stories of people he has known and admired to show that one doesn’t have to be young or physically fit to enjoy life or to make an invaluable contribution to society. No pop psychology or self-help manual, Rich in Years points readers to the vital role of faith, family, and community in combatting loneliness, living with dementia, reconciling with family, and making end-of-life decisions.

Arnold has helped over a million readers navigate crucial life issues such as forgiving, parenting, and grieving. His books blend wisdom from the world’s great thinkers and faith traditions with stories of ordinary people. “People love stories,” he says. “My hope is that they find themselves in my books and say, ‘That could be me.’”
