About the Author:
After serving churches in the UK as a pastor for thirty years–first at Lansdowne Evangelical Free Church, West Norwood, in London, then at Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh–Derek Prime has devoted himself since 1987 to an itinerant ministry and to writing. He lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with his wife, Betty.
“Like vintage wine, A Good Old Age is the exquisite fruit of a lifetime of Christian ministry and leadership that aims to particularly help elderly Christians navigate the final years of the journey of faith. It charts the ‘A to Z’ of Christian discipleship in an immensely practical, warm, and honest way in short, insightful reflections on each letter of the Alphabet of Christian Living. It’s so good it shouldn t be kept to the ‘Oldies’ – it will be a great aid to discipleship to a Christian of any age. I can’t recommend it highly enough.” —Trevor Archer, FIEC London Director
“Here is practical and pastoral wisdom from a man who has soaked his life in the Scriptures. Younger pastors will be helped to understand the challenges that face our older brothers and sisters as well as getting some advanced preparation for what is ahead. In truth, the lessons here are good for every generation and I warmly commend this book.” —Paul Rees, Lead Pastor, Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh
Drawing on a lifetime immersed in God’s Word, Derek Prime gives us a roadmap for pursuing godliness in our later years. The value of this book lies in its specific application of the Scriptures to the challenges and opportunities of old age. Honest, insightful and full of grace, this book is a goldmine of wisdom for older believers. –Colin S. Smith, Senior Pastor, The Orchard and President, Unlocking the Bible
