“Grumbling and gratitude are, for the child of God, in conflict. Be grateful and you won’t grumble. Grumble and you won’t be grateful.” Billy Graham
Collected from his astounding 7 decades of boldly proclaiming the Gospel message, Billy Graham in Quotes, is a treasure. Compiled by Franklin Graham with Donna Lee Toney, this 400+ page book is a wonderful reference that anyone would want on their desk for wisdom and encouragement.
An “anchor verse” is provided at the beginning of each of the 107 alphabetized categories. Subjects range from “Billy Graham on Abortion” to “Billy Graham on Young People” with 105 topics in between. Examples of the book sections include: anxiety, character, God’s will, prayer, success, pride, encouragement, family and religion. As stated by Franklin Graham in the forward: “The quotes contained in this book are taken predominantly from my father’s writings from 1947-2010…”
The book is well-organized for easy access to the variety of topics, and the majority of the quotations are brief enough for quick inspiration. I’ve highlighted several scriptures and quotations throughout this comprehensive reference. This is a text that I will reach for again and again.
I’m confident that most people will enjoy reading Billy Graham in Quotes. It provides guidance for living a life of integrity every day. This book will be on my must-give list this Christmas! Thanks to Booksneeze for providing me with a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
