The Final Lap

Navigating the Transitions of Life


Life’s a marathon with many highs and lows along the way. As we approach retirement we transition into a new stage of our race, presenting us with a range of possibilities and pitfalls to navigate.

With experience and warmth, John Wyatt invites Christians to think through how to approach the next stages of life well. He considers the move firstly from work to retirement, then independency to dependency, and finally from life to death as we approach the finishing line.

Whilst being honest about the struggles of each transition, The Final Lap lays out the wonderful opportunities God gives in every stage. And the more prepared we are to face each transition as it comes, the better we can face the challenges and the more fully we can embrace the future with hope and joy.

'As someone who has recently moved from work to retirement, I found this book both encouraging and challenging. John Wyatt takes us through three significant transitions with huge personal implications for all of us. With sensitive pastoral insight and a fine grasp of biblical teaching he has given us a unique and immensely helpful book.'

Paul Mallard, author of The Grace of Gratitude and Invest Your Suffering

'Reading this book, I stopped and punched the air with joy!'

Louise Morse, Pilgrims' Friend Society; author, What's Age Got To Do With It?

'A unique, comforting, and profound insight into the three major transitions that are likely to happen in the later stages of life. This extremely digestible and positive read will encourage and inspire all who find themselves in later life, as well as those of us who offer pastoral care and support to this precious generation. I would go as far as to say, I would recommend The Final Lap to everyone!'

Pippa Cramer, MBE, Pastoral Care and Seniors Minister Holy Trinity Church, Claygate

'Whilst reading this handbook for growing old, I found myself underlining certain key questions and thoughts in black literally five times. Why? Because I could see they would be critical for the last years of my life and yet they were new to me. I guarantee you will find yourself doing the same. So go and get your pen, there are truths here we must internalise if we want to be wise.'
