Need something new?Midlife brings changes, responsibilities, losses. Meanwhile, in your personal walk with God, things may have become ho-hum. Can God meet you if you take a new and fresh path? He surely can!Lynne Baab writes, "At midlife one of our tasks is to discover patterns of living that will endure through the second half of our lives and give us pleasure, joy and connection with God in new ways." She introduces us to six time-tested patterns of spiritual discipline, showing how they may help us combat spiritual restlessness and ennui, helping us find fresh paths for the years ahead.

Although Baab's book offers no particularly new insights either about midlife crises or the various spiritual avenues to deal with them, and her perceptions can occasionally be unsophisticated, she honestly and simply confronts the spirituality of midlife.
