Billy Graham in Quotes

You've heard of Billy Graham right? The famed evangelist and author of our generation? He has on every continent and in over 185 countries! I've never even been farther east than Ohio.

There is a new book out written by Billy Graham's son, Franklin Graham, and Donna Lee Toney. It is basically a compilation of tons of Billy Graham quotes over the years. And when I say tons, I mean TONS.

The book came in the mail and I couldn't believe how thick it was! Over 400 pages.

I love books like this, where you can get inspiration quickly with the flip of a page!

In Billy Graham in Quotes, you'll find lots of categories. Including:
  • Addiction
  • Angels
  • Bible
  • Children
  • Comfort
  • Commitment
  • Compromise
  • Disappointment
  • Eternity
  • Faith
  • Family
  • God's Will
  • Heaven
  • Marriage
  • Salvation
  • Thankfulness
  • Worry
And that is not even all of the categories!

Let me share with you some of my favorite quotes that are featured in the book..

On Anxiety
"Anxiety and fear are like baby tigers: the more you feed them, the stronger they grow."

On The Bible
"I don't think people can live without hope.
What oxygen is to the lungs, hope is to our survival in the world.
And the Bible is filled with hope."

On Comfort
"There are countless opportunities to comfort others, not only in the loss of a loved one, but also in the daily distress that so often creeps into our lives."

On Death
"Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe a word of it!
I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God."

On Grief
"When we grieve over someone who has died in Christ,
we are sorrowing not for them but for ourselves.
Our grief isn't a sign of weak faith, but of great love."

On Heaven
"The moment we take our last breath on earth, we take our first in Heaven."

On Speech
"We should say nothing that we would not wish to say in His Presence.
We should do nothing that we would not do in His Presence."

  2. Wow. Thank you so much for sharing this. That last quote is so simple yet profound! How much more serene would my life be if I paused before speaking and acting to consider if I would say or do the thing in His presence! I can't wait to pick up this book. Blessings...
