“How do you live ‘in context’ as a believer
in your particular profession, ministry, passion, etc.?”

What Now?

Most of us are aimlessly growing old. After the kids are grown and we coast into retirement, what are we doing with our lives? What is our purpose? Does God still have plans to use us?

This 4-episode series includes teaching from the WH Griffith Thomas Lecture Series given in 1999 at Dallas Theological Seminary by Professor Howard Hendricks. Special thanks to Jeanne Hendricks for permission to use these lectures.

In this episode, Michael speaks with Jeanne Hendricks about aging with purpose and teaches from Psalm 71.


 Dr. Howard G. HENDRICKS

Dr. Howard G. Hendricks, known simply as “Prof,” directly or indirectly touched millions of lives in the evangelical community and beyond. For more than sixty years Prof served on the faculty of Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS), where he taught more than ten thousand students. He also ministered in person in more than eighty countries. Through speaking engagements, radio, tapes, films, the sixteen books he authored and coauthored, countless journal and popular-market articles, his service on numerous boards, and his work as a chaplain to the Dallas Cowboys (1976–1984), his reach was and is worldwide. His legacy, in partnership with Jeanne, his wife of more than sixty-six years, includes four children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Together they raised four children, ministered, traveled, and co-authored several books. Jeanne has written several books on marriage and parenting.
