Nearing Home, Comforts and Counsels for the Aged by William E Schenck and published by Classics Publishing.
This choice volume was compiled in 1868 and comprises a wonderful compendium of writings on the subject of the believer's home in heaven. Containing hymns, poems, sermons and articles it mines the rich vein of truth in the Word of God concerning the glory that awaits the believer. The writers include such well-known authors as Horatius Bonar, Archibald Alexander, John Newton, Richard Baxter, Paul Gerhardt and William Romaine.
Whether we be old or young, thoughts of heaven are not only comforting but most necessary if we are to maintain our usefulness and remain faithful to our Saviour. Too infrequently is heaven the theme of our sermons and the subject of our praise. Among the pieces chosen are a number that challenge us as to our state and preparedness for heaven, Those engaged in visiting the elderly will find this a most helpful source of counsel and comfort, whilst all may benefit from its contents.
