First published by J. Astwood, for Tho. Parkhurst, London, 1688.
Though not a popular subject, the serious consideration of aging is one of supreme importance in every stage and condition of life. Without exception, every person on earth is growing older as each moment passes: this is a universal fact. The young need to prepare for maturity and eternity; for "early piety lays the surest foundation for comfort in old age." And the mature must be diligent in "redeeming the time" (Ephesians 5:16) which remains to them; recognizing the duties, dangers and delights which attend the aging process. This never-before-reprinted, long-sought-after title is recommended to the reader in the following descriptive terms: Biblical, God-glorifying, insightful, practical, challenging, thought-provoking, wise, evangelical, edifying, convicting, humbling, sin-exposing, pithy, urgent, experimental, preparational, succinct, and not without an occasional display of humor.
Gold hardcover with black lettering on front cover and spine. 226 pages.
