Abstract:

"There is no age restriction on spiritual growth. So, why do we act like there is? For the last several decades, Western churches have focused the bulk of their resources on the early stages of discipleship-children's Sunday school, youth group, college ministry. These are all important, but we've neglected spiritual growth in the second half of life. In fact, an outside observer might think that after the growth of the college years, the goal is simply to coast through the rest of your Christian life. Michelle Van Loon has a different idea. In Becoming Sage, she challenges those in midlife and beyond to continue to pursue radical spiritual growth, and she'll help you get started. She explores what the unique challenges of midlife can teach us about Jesus and how to think about everything from church, friends, and family, to money, bodies, and meaning. Don't settle for a life of coasting. Revitalize your spiritual growth, today"--
