In a youth-focused world, where “anti-ageing” is a marketable concept, Neville Smith’s book is a breath of fresh air for people who are in what might be known as the “third age”.
It’s No Sin to be Sixty is a positive and thought-provoking volume of reflections which takes an entertaining look at many aspects of later life, and offers prayers to help the readers lay it all in the hands of the Lord.
This book can be called upon in good times and bad – in daytime when you’re doing the garden, or in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep. Neville Smith affirms the reader that God still loves us when we lose our glasses, or forget what we’re here after.
Neville Smith is a retired Anglican priest who spent many years as a hospital chaplain, latterly at Guy’s Hospital, London. He is married to anne and lives in London.
