The Reason for my Hope

Billy Graham's book, "The Reason For My Hope: Salvation" is a book that discusses and illustrates the hope found in salvation. One of the things I really liked about this book was that it offers up tons of personal stories of people just like you and I, who experienced life changing events, Biblical references, and the wisdom of a man who has served God for 70 years. Billy Graham writes this book with a passion for sharing God's salvation that is almost palatable. 

"The Reason For My Hope: Salvation" easily gets 5 stars. The book itself is easy to read, and even easier to follow. Graham uses easy to comprehend language to tell the stories of the Bible, and explain their meaning and context. I found that Billy Graham inserts a lot of factual statements that are easily used as an argument for Christianity, which is definitely helpful when discussing such topics with children, family, etc. For example, in his book, Graham concludes, "There is more evidence that Jesus rose from the dead than there is that Julius Caesar ever lived or that Alexander the Great died at the age of thirty-three".

The chapters in this book are relatively short, with each chapter being broken down into smaller sections that could easily break this up into reading that could be done daily. This could easily be broken down into devotional reading. I would highly recommend this reading to anyone who is a fan of Billy Graham, or who really wants to dive deeper into the topic of salvation. 

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received this book for free from BookSneeze.com's blogger program in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.
