You've spoken truth over my life... September 1, 2013
I love quotes. I love the way a few words can speak of a simple deep wisdom.
Over 25 yrs ago I heard Billy Graham preach in Washington D.C.
He spoke in plain English, he shared not just his heart but the heart of God.
WAVES of people went forward for prayer.
In the midst of all the "achievements" and revival meetings, the convetion centers that were over flowing...Billy remained a humble servant of the Most High. " I look forward to seeing Christ and bowing down before Him in praise and gratitude for all He has done for us, and for using me on this earth by His grace-just as I am."
The book is set up so that you can read the quotes by subject.
"Many times it just takes one member of a family to initiate the action to bring a family back together."
"Your faith may be just a little thread. It may be small and weak, but act on that faith. It does not matter how big your faith is but rather, where your faith is."
"Perhaps the greatest psychological, spiritual, and medical need that people have is the need for hope."
"Marriage is the most serious long-term contract a couple will make in their lifetime, but many enter into it with a lack of maturity and knowledge. The growing number of divorces shows how imperative it is that young people be adequately prepared for marriage."
This is an excellent resource for teachers and preachers, and those in need of some plain spoken truths.

This is a great resource of a truly iconic Christian worker. July 30, 2013
Though many people echo the same--Billy Graham was very influential on my Christian life. His aging legacy touched me more than his direct work. Since I was very young, I remember watching old messages by Billy Graham, in black and white, with my dad. But it was in my tweens, reading his autobiography, that Graham's legacy had the greatest effect on my work as a Christian. As such, I was overjoyed when I had the opportunity to review another collection of Graham's work.
Compiled by Billy Graham's son, Franklin Graham, and friend, Donna Lee Toney, Billy Graham in Quotes is a rather comprehensive collection of Billy Graham's thoughts on wide variety of topics--from young people to the Bible. This is a great resource of a truly iconic Christian worker.

Review by Daniel
God Speaks His Word Straight Into The Hearts Of Men And Women.
The Word Of God Is Alive And Active Today In The Lives Of Millions.
With the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as his singular focus, Billy Graham has faithfully, passionately, and unapologetically preached God’s Word for more than seventy years. At the age of ninety-two, during an exclusive Fox News interview in 2010, Dr. Graham told Greta van Susteren, “I have a tremendous amount of hope for the future because of Jesus Christ.”
In this stunning collection of quotes by Billy Graham comes a historic anthology covering seven decades of ministry, drawing from both his published and personal works. These pages are filled with hope, truth, and redemption and seek the hearts of a lost people who need God now more than ever.
Today we are putting our hopes in materialism, in technological progress, and in freedom from moral absolutes. They have all failed. They have failed because they have been powerless to change the human heart.
Join Billy Graham as he seeks to bring God’s Word to the heart of daily life. Reconnect and be drawn like never before. “Hearing Billy Graham express hope for the world gives me hope that my life can be worthwhile,” comments one twenty-two-year-old. Arranged topically for easy reference, Billy Graham in Quotes provides insight on more than one hundred topics anchored in Scripture. This gifted evangelist takes the focus off of the messenger and shines the Light on the Message of God’s Word.
Earth’s troubles fade in the light of heaven’s hope.
