Book DescriptionA note from Franklin Graham: "My father, Billy Graham, is known for speaking out about the one and only thing that matters in this world: the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. He remembers the call of God seven decades ago to preach the Word of God to all those who would listen about salvation that comes only through Christ. He took this high calling with seriousness and boldness in obedience to God and once said, 'I will travel anywhere in the world to preach if there are no strings on what I am to say.'
"My father has always prayed that his words would reflect God’s standard of truth as the basis to claim, 'I have given them Your word' (John 17:14). In this book, I believe you will see that he has faithfully spoken God’s Word that quenches the thirst of those seeking to draw from the wellsprings of Life. It is highly meaningful to see these statements now collected in one volume."
Drawn from an unparelleled collection of both personal and published works, Billy Graham provides input on more than one hundred topics, such as suffering, joy, money, addictions, peace, and many more.
I have read many of Billy Graham's books and have loved them all. This one is life-changing. It's not so much a devotional, although you can use it as such, but rather a plethora of spoken messages that cause you to think deeply. It's the best counseling tool to have under your belt because the chapters are organized by subject matter. If you like helping and encouraging someone in need, the many references will provide great hope in their time of need. For instance, abortion, addiction, and anxiety grabbed my attention right away because it's so relevant for today. In fact, just reading the word of God has a calming effect and knowing this great evangelist's personality, he provides comfort and reassurance throughout the passages. A great book for home and church library, as well as a beautiful gift for someone special. I especially like that the book ends with a section on young people. It's the real deal with a practical application for all to enjoy. Be refreshed and renewed.
5/5 stars. Highly recommend.
