Billy Graham in Quotes by Franklin Graham with Donna Lee Toney* A Review

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 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.

Franklin Graham
President and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse, is also president and CEO of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The fourth of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham’s five children, Franklin is the author of the best-selling, autobiography Rebel with a Cause, All for Jesus, Living Beyond the Limits, The Name, and the children’s book, Miracle in a Shoebox.

Donna Lee Toney
A collegue of Franklin Graham for thirty years, has been involved in the ministries of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and in literary collaboration since 1982, most recently on the re-release of Storm Warning with Billy Graham.

Billy Graham is one of my most favorite evangelists. I’ve listened to him all of my life and to have a book of many, many quotes of his is just marvelous. In this 400 plus page book you will get to read Billy’s thoughts on all kind of subjects. They are things from abortion, Bible, church, death to suffering, truth, war, young people. Billy Graham preached for more than seventy years, so you know he has a lot of wisdom in this book.
In the back of the book in the note section Franklin Graham and Donna Lee Toney put in where each quote came from and the date of that service etc…
There are 107 sections in this book and each section has several quotes on each subject. It’s just amazing to me that all of the wisdom you will read in this one book.
On the front of the book is one of Billy Graham’s quotes that is beautiful, “When the gospel of Jesus Christ is presented with authority-quoting from the very word of God- He takes that message and drives it supernaturally into the human heart.” -Billy Graham
Here is another quote from Billy Graham that is oh so true, “The issue of abortion is not whether you have a right to terminate the life of a child… The real issue is whether or not you will insist on running your own life according to your own standards, or whether you will instead let God run your life.”
This is a book that you need to keep and read and re-read again and again. I would give this book more than five stars if it were possible.
