Book Description

Oct. 15 2013

Back cover: 

What is the most hopeful word in History?

For Billy Graham, that word is SALVATION.

Salvation from what?

From our selfish and self-destructive selves.

From the messes we get ourselves into.

From the sin that has haunted humanity from the beginning of time and the evil that pulls us down every day.

From the cultural deceits that blind us to God's saving message.

From the Hell so many don't believe in.

If we don't think we need salvation, we're fooling ourselves.

If we think we are beyond salvation, we're underestimating God.

If we just don't want to think about salvation, we're putting ourselves in eternal peril.

At the age of ninety-five Billy Graham proclaims God's Gospel with resolve and deep compassion. It is a message he has been preaching for more than seventy years. And in this book you will sense its urgency, filled with hope for the future. 

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31)

From America’s evangelistic elder statesman

Salvation is what we all long for, when we are lost or in danger or have made a mess of our lives. And salvation belongs to us, when we reach out for the only One who can rescue us—Jesus.

The saving message of the Gospel is the heartbeat of this preacher and evangelist. Millions around the world have heard Billy Graham proclaim this unchanging truth. He has never forgotten the transformation of his own life, when he first said yes to God’s gift of salvation, and he has witnessed multitudes turn their hearts to the God of Hope.

The Reason for My Hope: Salvation presents the essence of that transformative message. It is biblical and timeless, and though simple and direct, it is far from easy. There are hard words, prophetic words, directed toward a culture that denies the reality of sin and distracts us from the veracity of Hell. But through its ominous warnings shines a light that cannot be extinguished—a beacon of hope that Jesus came “to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10).

1.0 out of 5 stars Pablum for Christians Oct. 17 2014
By Kyle
Format:Hardcover
This book is absolute and utter garbage. Written almost undoubtedly by the ghost writer hired by an old man who's likely terrified of a computer, this book lacks any meaningful insights and propagates an elementary narrative of how having Jesus Christ inside of you feels so good.

He uses metaphors as the evidence for his arguments. "If you doubt my thesis, consider these truths. Hope is the breath of nature that surrounds us every day... Hope is the first ray of sunshine that peeks above the horizon-". Oooh, very compelling. Except that those are metaphors and metaphors can't be facts. In fact, metaphors are pretty much the exact opposite of facts. That's what makes them metaphors.

If you're already a Christian who wants to feel good about yourself without having to read big, confusing words or actually think about things that might conflict with your worldview or possibly make you think differently about things, buy this book. Otherwise, avoid it like the plague.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CHRISTIAN INSPIRATIONAL CLASSIC FROM BILLY GRAHAM! Oct. 15 2013
By the GreatReads! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It's almost exactly two years ago that Nearing Home by Billy Graham (Thomas Nelson, October, 2011) was released. Having read the book, I was led to believe that Rev. Billy Graham wouldn't live long enough to write another book. But though age and illness have removed him from the public eye, here it is: another inspiring book from one of the greatest preachers of all time.

The Reason for My Hope: Salvation by Billy Graham (Thomas Nelson, October 2013), the world-renowned author, preacher, and evangelist, who has delivered the gospel message to more people face-to-face than anyone in history and has ministered on every continent of the world, is a clarion call to set our priorities right, and set our minds on the life hereafter. With heartwarming and touching anecdotes and stories that reflect the core message that has guided his life and calling, the book essentially is a recap of what he has been preaching for well over half-a-century. The Reason for My Hope: Salvation is an invitation to rediscover the faith that saves.

This book of 224-odd pages contains eight well thought-out chapters:
1. Rescued for Something
2. The Great Redemption
3. Sin Is In
4. The Price of Victory
5. Where is Jesus?
6. Defining Christianity in a Designer World
7. No Hope of Happy Hour in Hell
8. He Is Coming Back

Wherever you are in life, The Reason for My Hope: Salvation will truly bless you if you'd take the time to read its message. It is a book, it is a sermon, and it is, perhaps, a farewell message. Whatever the case may be, the message of the book will continue to teach and preach long after Billy Graham is gone. It will inspire and motivate Christians to hold on tightly to that great gift of salvation, for without salvation we are nothing!

Format:Hardcover
Outstanding book. It is captivating, easy to read, and brings the gospel message home. Any age will be able to grasp the content of this very inspiring book. I would highly recommend this book. I bought several copies and will give them as Christmas presents. I thank God for a preacher like Dr. Billy Graham who has walked the talk and is a witness to what a Christian is like.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Reason for my Hope: Salvation by Dr. Billy Graham Oct. 29 2013
By Michael D. Witowich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
There is undoubtedly one thing that Dr. Billy Graham is known for and that is preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who is the hope of salvation for all mankind. So, even though he has advanced in years, it is no shock to read through one of his most recent books and find that it centers around the very subject of salvation, and specifically the hope that is found in Jesus Christ.
While telling the story of why Jesus came, what He did on the cross and how anyone can receive Him as the Savior of their own life, the book addresses issues that are prevalent in the day and age in which we live. From chapters entitled "Sin is in" to "There's no hope of happy hour in hell", Dr. Graham is not afraid to tackle issues that many Christian leaders would rather avoid.
This book is also filled with many stories and illustrations. At first, I wasn't sure if it was going to contain only stories without scripture, but it quickly fills with the Biblical basis for salvation and what God's word says about hope. Jesus is our hope of salvation. And as he has done faithfully for decades, Dr. Graham explains how Jesus can be your hope too. He is not afraid to use words like sin and hell, as I mentioned earlier. And he's also not afraid to use words like judgment and repent.
Who should read this book? Anyone who has forgotten quickly what Jesus did for them on the cross. Anyone who has lost hope in a chaotic world. Anyone who is a believer but needs to remember how good God has been to them. And, most of all, anyone who has never entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. I received this book free from the publisher through the [...] book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. And I recommend it to those who fit the categories I have listed.

Review:
If you get any book written by Billy Graham, this is the book to get. I think this is the best book Billy has written to date. You want to be uplifted, inspired, and be filled with hope. Read this book! You won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Everyone...who longs for real hope! Oct. 20 2013
By Pamela - Published on Amazon.com
Format:MP3 CD|Verified Purchase
In a time of such uncertainty, Billy Graham's message of truth and hope is made so clear in every page, as he reveals the message of Salvation to all generations, now and in the future. He reveals Gods plan and purpose for all who will listen, in a very clear and easy to understand way. In this book a leading guru gave his findings: "People say, "I believe in God. I believe the Bible is a good book. And then I believe whatever I want." Billy Graham's book will challenge you to consider why you believe what you believe and recognize we are all sinners and need a savior. "Believe on The Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31)
