Billy Graham Said What?

I love reading quotes and for a good part of my adult life I have read quotes by Billy Graham via the Internet.  I know when it comes to the Internet that sometimes people are misquoted so I was excited to find a book that was composed only of Billy Graham's quotes put together by his son Franklin Graham. 

The book has over 100 topics that are listed alphabetically.  It covers about every topic you can think of from abortion to worship.   At the beginning of each topic it begins with a key Bible verse, then the quotes on the topic follow.   Some of the quotes were very familiar to me while others where knowledgeable information that every child of God knows, then there were some quotes that I would stop, read again and sit and meditate on the words of wisdom that were just shared with me. 

I would recommend this book as a resource.  It is not the kind of book to sit down and read from front to back.  Instead, I feel that it would be best read in bits and pieces.  With it being categorized into topics, it makes it easy to find the area in which you are looking for, the topic that may be helpful to you at the right moment.   

Here are a few of my favorite quotes that I found on the pages of the book.

"God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters."   Billy Graham

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

"The Spirit of God Takes the Word of God and makes the Child of God."  Billy Graham

**This book was provided to me by the publisher through in exchange for my honest review.
