While his earthly vision dims, the glory of heaven is illuminated as Billy Graham, the beloved evangelist, shares from his past, and his present, the reality of eternity.
Although Billy Graham may no longer preach from the stadiums of the world, in this book you will sense his heart still beats strong with the resounding assurance that he will spend eternity with Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. In Where I Am, Mr. Graham invites and strongly encourages all of us to contemplate our eternal hope.
When asked, “Where is Heaven?” Mr. Graham has wisely replied, “Heaven is where Jesus Christ is, and I'm going to Him soon.”
The greatest promise ever given to the human race came from the lips of our Redeemer when Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me...I go to prepare a place for you...I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:1–3). Just after his ninety-fifth birthday, Mr. Graham proclaimed with resolve, “When I die, tell others that I've gone to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ—that's where I am.”
As our nation and world travail in the midst of political, economic, and cultural uncertainties, we can find comfort in the hope that comes from the unchanging truth of God's Word. Whether talking with a US president, a world leader, or the common man or being interviewed on network television, Billy Graham has always begun his answers with “The Bible says…”
In Where I Am, Mr. Graham shares what the Bible has to say about eternity from all of its sixty-six books; messages of truth, warning, love, and the certainty of the future, all gleaned by a man who would like to be remembered solely as a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Each short chapter examines the reality that each of us chooses where to spend life after death: Heaven or Hell. From the Old Testament writer who composed “Show me Your ways, O Lord” (Psalm 25:4) to the New Testament writer who penned the words of Jesus, “Whoever believes in [Me] should not perish” (John 3:16), there is hope for anyone who puts his or her faith and trust in the One who gives us the promise, “Where I am, there you may be also” (14:3).
BILLY GRAHAM, world-renowned preacher, evangelist, and author, has delivered the Gospel message to more people face-to-face than anyone in history and has ministered on every continent of the world, in more than 185 countries. Millions have read his inspirational classics, including Angels, Peace with God, The Holy Spirit, Hope for the Troubled Heart, How to Be Born Again, The Journey, Nearing Home, and The Reason for My Hope: Salvation.

Where I Am by Billy Graham is an awe-inspiring book. Rev. Graham is in his Nineties, but very alert and his mind is still as sharp as ever. In this wonderful book Billy Graham goes through every book in the Bible, all sixty-six of them and points out truths, warnings and hope for us to grab unto in a ever changing world.
One quote from his book Where I Am, that I love is this. Talking about Jesus, “This penniless preacher has invited the whole world to His coronation. Have you accepted the engraved invitation from the Heavenly palace, sealed with His royal emblem-thee distinguishing mark of His royal blood?”
Billy talks about how much he is looking forward to going home to Heaven. It just makes you look forward to going home yourself.
The book talks about how God is a God of love, but also of justice and mercy. He loves us, but won’t put up with our sin. Also how even the vilest person God wants them to come to Him.
In Where I Am, Billy Graham tells us that Hell wasn’t made for humans, but for the devil and his followers, but those who don’t accept Jesus will go there. It’s a very sad and sobering thought that people will go to hell.
This book is full of so much truth and insight that you need to read it. I very highly recommend it. Thank you Rev. Billy Graham.
