""Compelling . . . a rare find . . . a very special gift. This book of growing older stories is must reading for all ages, especially older adults. Written in fascinating style, these stories can do more to combat ageism than any book I have read in recent years.""
-- Miriam Dunson, former Associate for Older Adult Ministry, Presbyterian Church (USA)

""Most older people we have known may not have made the history books, but they have made the history--of our families, our churches, our communities, our nations. Richard Morgan teaches us to once again listen to the stories of our elders because they are our history, our real history. Morgan helps us see--through the stories and words of those best suited to offer useful answers, namely those who have already been there--that for Christians aging is an experience we do not have to confront alone.""
-- Stephen Sapp, Dean of Religious Studies, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida

""As one highlight involved in recording life biographies of people of all ages, Autumn Wisdom has special meaning for preserving the stories of people in the third age of life. If we don't preserve these stories in some way, they are lost. As the ancient saying states, 'If we lose the stories of older people, we lose a library!' These are eighty-one stories of older people which will not be lost.""
-- Beth Sanders, Director of Life Bio (
