Book Review: Billy Graham in Quotes

This book is not meant to be read in one is a wealth of quotable quotes of Billy Graham compiled by his son, Franklin Graham. It is meant, instead, as a reference for Billy Graham's quotes that you can use in your sermons, speeches and writings.

Personally I am extremely delighted with this very useful collection and am amazed at the wisdom that God has bestowed upon this evangelist.

Here is a sampling of quotes that I find particularly inspiring and encouraging:

On abortion:
"The widespread acceptance of abortion is a symbol or sign of something
deeper within our society that should also concern us greatly.
This is the tendency today to decide moral
issues or questions only on the basis of
whether or not they are convenient or bring pleasure to a person."

On the Bible:

"We are not free to pick and choose the parts of the
Bible we want to believe or obey. God has given us all of it,
and we should be obedient to all of it."

On Christianity:

"Christianity is not an insurance policy against life’s ills and troubles."

"Becoming a Christian is the work of a moment;
being a Christian is the work of a lifetime."

On God:

"Most of us know about God,
but that is quite different from knowing God."

"If God can be fully proved by the human mind,
then He is no greater than the mind that proves Him."

"You will never understand who you are until
you understand who God is."

"The will of God will never take us
where the grace of God cannot sustain us."

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this e-book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
