The Time of Your Later Life is a guide to help older people explore new possibilities and write new life narratives in the process of growing older. It is an interpretation of some of the key events of the year seen through the eyes of a middle-ager who happens to work as a psychiatrist for older people and who actively aspires to be a thriving older person. The book reminisces, recalls, reinterprets and explores the themes and circumstances of the year based on a journey through the seasons. It consists of 52 essays (one for each week of the year) exploring: ThemesFestivalsRitualsOpportunities With observations and wry perceptions challenging the reader to do more and get more out of life. The intended audience for this book is the 16 per cent of the Irish population aged 65 and older, but also middle-agers approaching this age category, as well as friends, family members and supporters of older people irrespective of age – in other words, all of us.

‘God’s purpose for us is to show, as we get older, that he gives us his strength and, through our experiences of him, his wisdom,’ says Ian Knox. ‘God is not finished with us. In our later years we are not only to be blessed, but to be a blessing and bring a blessing.’ As we get older, some of us grow more frenetic in our anxiety to demonstrate that the force is still with us. Others withdraw, often quite abruptly. What is God’s view of ageing? The Bible has much to say, and many stories to tell, about those who did great things, those who did ordinary things well, those who prayed, those who used their gifts, those who suffered, those who went right to the end – and those who, in later years, got it absolutely wrong. How are we going to face the prospect of ageing? Will we subside, give up? Or shall we view retirement as a gift from God, an opportunity to reach out to others? Our older years are full of possibilities, not least of which is that of helping others find Christ.
