Invitation is a timely, elegant, giftable coffee table book illustrating the impact of Billy Graham on the lives of people during the past half-century. Three of Graham's grandsons have compiled stories, pictures, and testimonies of people whose lives have been powerfully transformed because of Graham's ministry. A layout of feature-length stories, shorter quotes and testimonials, pictures of Graham crusades, close-ups of people at crusades with tears in their eyes, and images of Billy himself bring to the reader a recapturing, in book form, of the emotional and spiritual experience that a person goes through in the powerful event that is a Billy Graham crusade. The structure of the book will be the structure of a Crusade, and the emotional/spiritual chronology of people during a crusade as they become convicted by God and choose to accept Jesus Christ into their hearts. The horizontal layout of the book, its professional design, and four-color interior make Invitation a beautiful, must-have book in living rooms across the country and around the world. The power of the true stories, the authentic voices speaking to how their lives were changed, and the echoes of Billy Graham's words create a powerful and deeply spiritual experience
Basyle (“Boz”) and Aram Tchividjian are grandchildren of Billy and Ruth Graham. Boz is an attorney who practiced in central Florida and who has recently joined the faculty of Liberty School of Law in Lynchburg, Virginia. Aram lives and works in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he runs a website design and programming company.
Two grandsons of Billy Graham, Basyle and Aram Tchividjian, have compiled a treasury of real-life accounts given by people whose lives have been changed forever by the gospel of Jesus Christ. But the one thread weaving in and out of each story is this: Each message of the gospel was given by a once-reluctant preacher named Billy Graham.
In 1934, Graham, a sixteen year old farm boy, gave his life to Christ. Later, as a student at Bible school, he felt a calling on his life to preach the gospel, a calling which he could not escape. Over the next seventy years, Billy Graham preached to over two billion people in 185 countries.
Invitation is a beautiful gift book, with dozens of pictures and testimonies recounting the faithfulness of God to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10). Dr. Grahams message in all his years of ministry was simple, yet astounding: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever would believe in Him would not perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16). Thats it. This gospel message has the power to change lives, as is testified in story after story. Dr. Graham has simply been Gods conduit.
However, also noted in Invitation in the side-notes Billy Up Close, is the warmth and compassion of the preacher who always has time for people, and has a humbleness and friendliness that seem to surprise people.
At the end of this book, most appropriately, is an invitation. The gospel message is once again laid out, this time addressing the reader. Thats what makes this gift book such a great gift: any reader could see the hope offered by the Savior and realize that God so loved them. -- Tracey Bonsell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
