If we were to describe our lives using the metaphor of fire, we would recognize that there comes a time when the flames have settled into a comfortable glow. The fire is steady, burning warmly, and in no danger of going out anytime soon. There is plenty of fuel to add to it, but no rush to do so. A bank of coals lies at the base of the fire, white hot and powerful. The fire has been well tended and is now ready to give back great heat and light for some time to come. This is a book for people who are moving into and through the stage of life characterized by that fire. It is for people who are ready to stoke the wisdom gained in the first half of their lives to burn with a brighter sense of purpose in the second half.
