Billy Graham in Quotes! When I saw the title of this book, I knew I had to get a copy. See, we named our firstborn son after Billy Graham's last name, because it was at a training seminar to be counselors at a Billy Graham conference that I gained the faith I needed during that pregnancy. If my son, Graham, carries on his faith like his namesake, I will be thrilled. If, he also brings honor to his dad like Billy Graham's son, Franklin, he will have completed a circle of faith to the next generation. Quotes like this, make my life go on:
Perhaps the greatest psychological, spiritual, and medical need that all people have is the need for hope.
I had the extreme privilege of reviewing this book provided by the Booksneeze.com program.
What better way to teach children, or anyone, but to learn quotes directly from the source. Students often learn poetry or other forms of memory work. An entire book of the Bible, Ecclesiastes, is devoted to nothing but words of wisdom to learn and live by. Many families find it easier to memories Proverbs and Psalms because of how the scriptures flow. Billy Graham's quotes are worth learning and memorizing and teaching to the next generation. Billy Graham talks on many topics. One of his quotes on family is:
More friction and tensions are caused in a family by tone of voice than for any other one reason.
This book is filled with quotes from the evangelist, Billy Graham. They were compiled with the help of his son, Franklin Graham, and Donna Lee Toney, who plays a role in Samaritan's Purse ministry.
The book is broken down into sections that could be used as an entire lesson in and of themselves. The sections offer specific quotes from Billy Graham related to:
Discipleship and Discipline
Imagination, Entertainment, and Fun
Living and Christian Life
Right & Wrong
Word of God
Just a handful of these topics would be enough to ponder for quite some time. But, having this book as a resource for anything life brings your way is a remarkable piece of paper to have on your shelf.
I love this book and will save it for my son as part of his namesake.
