    One thought on “40/40 Vision: Clarifying Your Mission in Midlife”

    1. I have a confession to make. I'm forty. I aged out in June and I am forced to face the fact that I'm statistically closer to the grave than the cradle. In many ways I don't feel forty yet. I feel like I'm still becoming who I was meant to be. I don't feel like I'm established. There is so much I had hoped to accomplish at this point, there is security which has eluded me, such as a fulfilling job and life success. 4434Authors Peter Greer and Greg Lafferty both have successful ministry careers.

    2. So much of this book hit home - right at a time and place where I needed it. I was fortunate enough to recently sit down with Peter Greer and was telling him about current “challenges” in my life (just one of which was trying to find my direction in rebuilding my life after going through a flood from Hurricane Harvey). I also had a clear notion that I should seek to “know God” more than seek an answer to “what do I do next?” Peter’s response was “paperback or audio?” and he han [...]

    3. This is the second book I have read of Peter Greer's and he is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors. This book intrigued me for the subject matter as I am well not 40 but approaching 50 real soon. But the content was ever bit as applicable I think. A very good read that I would recommend for anyone approaching mid life or a bit older.

    4. Peter Greer and Greg Lafferty, 40/40 Vision: Clarifying Your Mission in Midlife (Downers Grove, IL: IVP Books, 2015). [Note: This review originally appeared at InfluenceMagazine.]An 80-country survey asked respondents, “All things considered, how satisfied are you with your life as a whole these days?” People in their 40s were least satisfied, with 46-year-olds being unhappiest. I am 46 years old. Needless to say, I read Peter Greer and Greg Lafferty’s new book with keen interest.The forti [...]

    5. The closer I get to 40 and beyond, the more grateful I am to have an encouraging guide to help me navigate these uncertain waters.It's a book, of course, because books are my favorite teachers. It's called 40/40 Vision: Clarifying Your Mission in Midlife by Peter Greer and Greg Lafferty. It's a close look at the small Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes and what the great king Solomon has to say about the middle years viewed in retrospect. (Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchan [...]

    6. Faced squarely by the hard truth that one has landed in the middle of a short life that is rapidly getting shorter provides a person an opportunity to go one of two directions: do nothing different and continue as before, or re-evaluate and re-direct. In this regard the biblical material known as Ecclesiastes is a great place to go to get a dose of reality before things get too far out of hand and too far down the road. And one way to steer through Ecclesiastes is with the help of a new 208 page [...]

    7. 40/40 Vision's subtitle, Clarifying Your Mission in Midlife, reminds us that we each have a mission for life, a mission from God, whether we are living it consciously—or at all. Is there a way to navigate the waters of midlife that forges a stronger commitment to God's mission while casting away the jetsam that truly doesn't matter? 40/40 Vision turns to a book of the Bible that knows how much jetsam, how much unnecessary baggage, we can load up our lives with."Many of us, like my puppy, wag a [...]

    8. This is a very good book for Christians to read when they reach their 40s. It lacks some of the depth that they will need as time goes on but, drawing effectively on the lessons in the biblical book of Ecclesiastes, the authors do an excellent job of pointing their readers in the right direction, to get them thinking about crucial issues and questions that will help sustain them in the 2nd half of life. It's a sobering and an encouraging book. I wish I had read a book like it when I was in my 40 [...]

    9. This is a study of the book of Ecclesiastes, which is always a wonderful reminder of the futility of all the things we chase after in this life. It is hard to go from that point, which feels so true, to the point of seeing above the sun, to what lies ahead. "Just because there is no meaning under the sun doesn't mean there is no meaning beyond it." This is an attempt at telling us how to do so, and how not to, in middle age. There is not a lot of depth here, in my opinion, but some really good r [...]

    10. This is a fantastic book, combining excellent life/leadership insight with sound Biblical exegesis based on Ecclesiastes. I just turned 38 and found a bit of myself on every page. It is a blessing to find scriptural guidance for the malaise that can creep in for many mid-lifers. I've already recommended it to several of my buddies and I hope the book will find a wider audience in coming years.

    11. I'll call this a "gateway" book. There is not much depth to any of the chapters; however, there are several authors and titles referenced throughout the book that will satisfy piqued interests. Quick read & footnotes for referenced works = 4 stars.

    12. Encouraging book about the challenges men face in midlife. Pulling from the book of Ecclesiastics, the authors offer more like words of encouragement than practical types for avoiding the mid-life pitfalls.
