#### Abstract

A dynamical model of the decaying vacuum energy is presented, which is based on Jordan-Brans-Dicke theory with a scalar field $\phi$. The solution of an evolutionary differential equation for the scalar field $\phi$ drives the vacuum energy towards a cosmological constant at the present epoch that can give for the age of the universe, $t_0\sim 13.5$ Gyr for $\Omega_0=1$, which is consistent with the age of globular clusters.
