“I read this book from cover to cover. To my knowledge, Ambushed at Sunset is the only book available that deals so thoroughly, so wisely, so helpfully with problems that trouble aging people. Or if you are at life’s high noon (or earlier), this book will help you understand some acute dificulties with which relatives and friends in life’s senior years may be struggling. Ideal for a church library and for people working with and caring for seniors.
—Dr. Vernon Grounds, Chancellor, Denver Seminary
“Reader friendly, practical, clear, upbeat, humorous and helpful. This is a great gift for seniors. It will stimulate enjoyable discussions with one’s spouse, small groups and classes. A must for people working with, and caring for, seniors.”
—Dr. Gordon Lewis, Senior Theology Professor, Denver Seminary
“I approached Ambused at Sunset with a bit of anxiety. Would the author preach at me? Would the book add to my problems? I was delightfully wrong on both counts. The book is entertaining, enlightening, and encouraging. I like the positive emphasis, the wise use of humor, and the solid biblical counsel that isn’t preachy.”
—Dr. Warren Wiersbe, Author, Conference Speaker
“If this book is any indication of style, Dr. Gilmore must be a lively conference speaker and seminar leader on senior themes. It is an easy volume to find one’s way through.”
—Paul Schuessler, Reviewer, MetroLutheran, Minneapolis, MN
Ambushed at Sunset shows how Jesus’s desert temptations have practical significance and application to “Fifty-Something” folks. Gilmore addresses fourteen specific temptations that face older adults and advises how Christians can both neutralize and defeat these temptations. If you enjoy Christian perspectives written with verve and vitality, you will cherish the penetrating and practical insights of this book. Small groups will find it appealing because each chapter includes suggested discussion questions.
