Billy Graham Quotes by Franklin Graham


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.'


 Book Description

"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 chose the book to review because I enjoy reading Billy Graham books, and although his son Franklin wrote this book, I thought there would be quotes from his many other books as well as his preaching. There are so very many quotes in this wonderful book and they cover every imaginable topic you can think of.  A few of them are, Comfort, Commitment, Children, Addiction, Age, End Time, The Cross, Hope, Worry, Worship, Youth, Race, Salvation, Sin, Joy Love, Loneliness, Jesus, Marriage, Prayer, Pride, and this list goes on and on.
As I read through the book, I highlighted some of the quotes that stood out for me so thought I would list a few to give you an idea.

There are thousands of lonely people who carry heavy and difficult burdens of grief, anxiety, pain, and disappointment; but the loneliest of all is one whose life is steeped in sin.

The light of God’s presence in our lives is a purifying flame that will draw us near to Him.

The Bible is God’s book of promises, and, unlike the books of men, it does not change or get out of date.3 Let the study of the Bible become central in your life— not just so you will know it, but that you will obey it.

The secret strength of a nation is found in the faith that abides in the hearts and homes of the country. 

Life has its share of joys and laughter—but we also know life’s road is often very rough. Temptations assail us; people disappoint us; illness and age weaken us; tragedies and sorrows ambush us; evil and injustice overpower us. Life is hard—but God is good, and heaven is real!

And there are so many more I that I loved, but this will give you a feel of what the book is like.This book would be a great resource for your home. It is important to have books to find help with different subjects as we need it, and this book is one of those.

I received this book free from the Thomas Nelson through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
