Review: The Reason for My Hope:Salvation by:Billy Graham
About the Book:
America’s Evangelist presents his masterwork.
Who would refuse rescue? This is the question Billy Graham asks throughout this book. The answer is sometimes surprising because there are actually people who refuse to be saved, even if they are in a hopeless situation. Why? Each chapter draws the reader in by posing questions for contemplation using relevant illustrations about what the world thinks in contrast to what the Bible says.
As Mr. Graham has expressed for decades, his purpose is to engage the reader in considering his or her life in light of the here and now and the hereafter. Who would refuse rescue from a plane crash, a sinking boat, an automobile fire, or an assassin’s bullet? True accounts are given that cause readers to ask what they think and how they would respond to similar experiences and to ultimately bring them to life’s most important question.
In what could be his final book, Billy Graham presents the core message that has guided his life and calling for more than 70 years. Filled with new stories and timeless truth, Graham once again calls the world back to its spiritual priority as only he can. The book coincides with a massive campaign of the same name by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association that will mobilize millions of people in the United States to invite friends and neighbors into their homes to hear the message of Jesus Christ through customized video and a new message from Mr. Graham.
The world renowned evangelist has been in charge of a life's calling and ministry to lead millions to Christ and just when we think we wouldn't hear anymore from this most eloquent speaker, he has stepped forward to remind us one more time, possibly his last. Remind us that through the utter chaos that has enveloped our country as of late that we should not lose focus on what truly matters.
Earlier this month, Mr. Graham spoke to our nation about this very thing in the hopes to turn our eyes heavenward instead of at our feet. God has the power to save us from destruction. God already knows how this all ends. The book contains many stories of some near death stories that were very close calls that had the people involved that death was eminent, but instead they were saved. Mr. Graham encourages us all to seek God and seek Him quickly for the end is near.
