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
