For ministers considering retirement, wouldn't it be wonderful to have the opportunity to sit down for a few hours with a competent and caring and faithful family physician to chat about what lies ahead - and how to stay healthy and happy in body and spirit? This book offers that opportunity.

Challenging the concept of clergy retirement as an ending or withdrawal, Dr. Halaas refers to retirement as "the Third Age" - potentially the most rewarding and important time of life. Dr. Halaas perceives retirement as an inviting series of "R's," such as reappraisal, reaffirmation, reallocation, reawakening, rekindling, renewal, and rediscovery. Opportunities of retirement when retirement is recognized as a time of "recommitting to the service of God."
