'Retire' means to 'withdraw', to 'retreat', to 'give ground', to 'cease to compete'.
In one sense that is true: retirement does involve a leaving of office or employment.
Yet retirement is also about new beginnings and new opportunities.
In this helpful book, grounded both in personal experience and in extensive research among retired ministers, and rich in quotations from an eclectic range of writers, Paul Beasley-Murray explores how retirement is part of God's rhythm for our lives and provides encouragement and insights for this next stage of the journey.
A must-read for lay and ordained Christians alike. 'Like all the writings of Paul Beasley-Murray, this refreshing book is thoroughly researched and generously illustrated from personal experience, and never shrinks from reflecting on the shadow side of this period of life.' David Coffey OBE, Global Ambassador for BMS World Mission and past President of the Baptist World Alliance'An invaluable aid for ministers of religion, in particular, and other people, generally, as they prepare for retirement.' Revd Dr Richard Jackson, Methodist minister and pioneer (in retirement) of the Cliff College International Training Centre
