"Billy Graham in Quotes" by Franklin Graham & Donna Lee Toney: A Review

Billy Graham in QuotesNo one has preached to more people than the world renown evangelist Billy Graham.  His popularity, respect, integrity, and fan fare had traveled with him throughout the world and he has faithfully proclaimed the gospel to the four corners of the world.  Now, at the edge of life, his son and others have gathered together a book of collected quotes from Dr. Graham on virtually every subject.  From Abortion to Young People, Franklin Graham and Donna Lee Toney allow Billy Graham to speak in the book Billy Graham in Quotes.

This is a great resource for every pastor and believer.  As a pastor it is helpful books like this that give us insight into complicated issues and gives extra authority behind them.  Everyone knows Billy Graham and even those who have rejected his gospel message over the decades respect him and as the introduction from Graham himself and the foreword from Franklin make clear, he has always sought to speak from the Word of God, uplifting Christ, and sought to use every opportunity to reach people with the gospel.

That is what makes this such a great resource.  Graham speaks from a conviction about Scripture and a desire to see people come to faith in Christ.  Unlike most book of quotes, there is a desire from the editors and collaborators to reach the reader with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I highly recommend this book and I highly recommend any book by Billy Graham and most biographies on him. Graham has been the face of Christianity for decades and this book shows us why.  For those wanting to know how to think on a whole host of issues, this is a great resource to have.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
