A Season of Mystery: 10 Spiritual Practices for Embracing a Happier Second Half of Life  -<br /> By: Paula Huston</p><p>

The book is geared toward older folks, so for those of you who are in your 20s, 30s, and 40s, this is a good book for your Christian parents, uncles, aunts, etc.

Huston focuses each chapter on a spiritual practice. The spiritual practices she covers are applied to older folks. Delighting, Listening, Befriending, Generation, Blessing, Accepting, Settling, and Confronting are some of the disciplines she addresses. She tells personal stories to illustrate her points and quotes authors with which most evangelicals will not be familiar. And many of the quotes are excellent.

Her goal is for “ordinary” older folks to have more God-reflective lives. Huston also takes dead aim at some of the myths about aging that are predominant in our present culture. There’s a discussion guide at the end of the book, which is helpful in stimulating throught and provoking conversation on the content.

    “Mysticism” is a good word, one that has negative connotations in some evangelical circles, sadly.
