Billy Graham Views Growing Old in New Memoir; "Nearing Home: Life, Faith and Finishing Well"

The Huffington Post website reports today (October 4, 2011) that Billy Graham -- considered by many people to be the greatest evangelist of all time -- has written a 180-page memoir on growing old titled "Nearing Home: Life, Faith and Finishing Well," which goes on sale in bookstores on October 18.

Graham, 92 -- who reveals in the memoir that he has difficulty getting up from a chair or putting on his shoes -- writes "At times I wish I could still do everything I once did, but I can't."

Despite their limitations, Graham assures readers that the senior years can be rewarding.

He cites biblical examples, including Moses, who died at 120 after leading the Egyptians to the Promised Land, and Elizabeth, who gave birth to John the Baptist though "well along in years."
