Completing the Race: Seniors in the Bible focuses on older men and women in the Bible running the race set before them. By faith many of them persevered despite unexpected, challenging circumstances. They learned to trust God more fully for the wisdom and strength needed in their senior years. A number of them endured personal losses or coped with national disaster. Some lived to have relationships with their grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and some outlived their children. A few found new ministry as their lives continued to produce fruit. Many became well known as men or women who prayed. They recognized God's mercy and grace.
These men and women ran life's race with an ever-present awareness that life on earth is fleeting and that eternity is a reality. Abraham, Sarah, David, Anna, Peter, John, and many others lived long lives to the glory of God. Their lives offer insights for us as we run our race.
