Billy Graham in Quotes by Franklin Graham

A 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 unparalleled 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.

MY THOUGHTS

"Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe a word of it! I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God."
quote by Billy Graham

In this fabulous book of quotes by the beloved Billy Graham, you will see glimpses of one of the greatest men who ever lived on the face of this earth.  Millions of lives all over the world have made life-changing decisions to follow Jesus because of the testimony and preaching of Billy Graham.

Looking over the multiple topics in the Table of Contents, this book is an invaluable resource to be treasured forever. Here is one of my favourites from the chapter titled The Bible.

The words of this Book have a way of filling in the missing pieces, of bridging the gaps, of turning the tarnished colors of our life to jewel-like brilliance. Learn to take your every problem to the Bible. Within its pages you will find the correct answer.

The topics covered are astronomical - from disappointment, happiness, human nature, children, commitment, angels, abortion, judgment, the cross, end times, addiction, family, forgiveness, and so many more. The quotes and the related scriptures are inspirational yet challenging, and this book is a treasure from cover to cover.

Billy Graham has had a huge impact on so many lives, and his clear mandate has been to boldly preach the gospel to all nations. He is an incredible role model and we can all learn from him.  I feel honored to have the opportunity to read this amazing book of his quotes collected over the past 70 years of his ministry.
