Book Review: Billy Graham In Quotes

Billy Graham in Quotes is a book written by his son Franklin Graham with Donna Lee Toney. Most people or at least those of Christian faith, are aware that Billy is a world renowned American Christian evangelist and probably the best known evangelist. I have long admired Mr. Graham's integrity and steadfast faith and was looking forward to reading this book of quotes. According to the foreword by Franklin Graham, the quotes are taken predominantly from Billy's writings from 1947 to 2010.

The quotes are divided in alphabetical order with various topics such as Anxiety, Pride and Repentance. At the top of each topic there is a corresponding bible verse, followed by Billy Graham's quotes. Each topic has 2-3 pages of quotes. Following the quotes section is a 'Notes' section which lists each publication where you can find the quote when it was originally written.

The collection of quotes is easy to read and understand, and could easily be used as a bible study companion or meditation guide. A great book and I highly recommend it.

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
