Peter Greer, President and CEO of Hope International, has written a new book called 40/40 vision: Clarifying your Mission in Midlife. It is hot off the press. The parts I’ve read are excellent. Here is a summary of the book from Amazon:
Midlife is a disruptive season where we collide with limitations on all sides. We recognize there is more of life in the rearview mirror than on the road ahead of us. We wonder if our lives so far have been worthwhile. We are uncertain about what lies ahead.
But midlife is also an opportunity to recalibrate our vision. It’s a time to look back, take stock of our lives so far, and refocus on new dimensions of identity and calling.
Peter Greer and Greg Lafferty offer insight for navigating midlife with fresh clarity and purpose. Drawing on the wisdom of the book of Ecclesiastes, they show how we can come to grips with the realities of who we are and what we should become in the years ahead. In a world that can seem meaningless at times, God offers perspective that anchors us, renews us and propels us back into the world in meaningful mission and service.
Rediscover who God has called you to be. And see the rest of your life with the clarity of 40/40 vision.”
