Billy Graham in Quotes
on May 21, 2012
When I was 10 years old, I went to my first and only Billy Graham crusade in Cleveland, Ohio. I saw DC Talk climb the side of the stage and sing - which was awesome! Then, finally after all the pageantry, I saw Billy Graham speak and share the Good News of Jesus. It wasn't anything spectacular. It was simply a man sharing how good Jesus is and how much he wanted to be reconciled to us. Even as a 10 year old boy, I could see his passion and I believed his message.
To write a book about Billy Graham quotes, without actually being able to hear his voice is like watching Seinfeld with subtitles and the sound off. It just doesn't carry the same impact. There were some great quotes in this book, but all in all, I was kind of disappointed in the caliber of quotes. Some that they attributed to him, I know I have seen in the books of much older saints of God - so that was a little disappointing as well.
I had to remember that there were certain subjects about which Billy Graham spoke so eloquently, and just because they created a section with some of his quotes in it - does not mean that they are necessarily memorable ones.
I'm grateful for Billy Graham and the impact his life has made. I hope he continues to live a great life for God's glory! You can pick up a copy of this book on Amazon or in a retailer that sells Christian books.
I received this book as part of Booksneeze.com's Blogging for Books program. The opinions are mine.
