In this culminating work of a lifetime, the remarkable Billy Graham invites you to join him in discovering God's plan for this exciting journey called life. Wherever you are in your journey just beginning, at the middle, or near the end you've already learned that life offers a variety of paths. The good news is that we aren't alone, says Graham. Not only did God carve out the path for us, but He wants to join us on the journey to help us with challenges along the way, and eventually lead us home.
This magnum opus from Billy Graham, seasoned with many personal stories from his own life, offers wisdom, encouragement, hope, and inspiration for anyone who wants to make the most of The Journey.
Billy Graham, world-renowned preacher, evangelist, and author has delivered the gospel message to more people face-to-face than anyone in history and has ministered on every continent of the world in more than 185 countries. Millions have read his inspirational classics, including Angels, Peace with God, The Holy Spirit, Hope for the Troubled Heart, How to Be Born Again, The Journey, Nearing Home, and The Reason for My Hope.
As with previous Graham books, everything presented here is biblically based, with plenty of specific references to Bible verses, stories, and lessons. The book speaks to the fact that in the 21st century, there is a sense of dread in the world due to terrorism, rampant inflation, new diseases that are resistant to modern drugs (bird flu, AIDS, mad cow), the breakdown of the family, and plummeting moral standards. But the book insists that the Bible continues to have answers and solutions to help overcome fears and worries now so prevalent.
Many times, people bring on the worst of their calamities. So, one section of this book is dedicated to helping people face, resist, and overcome the temptations that lead to sins. When Dr. Graham was speaking once in Australia, the book recounts, protestors charged into a meeting he was having with university students. The protestors carried signs saying, "I am the devil. I've come to destroy you." Dr. Graham only chuckled and said that Satan was far too cunning to be that confrontational. Instead, he likes to find a person's weak spots and to attack from behind, hitting a person unawares. To that end, it is important to admit one's own temptations and to strategize how to resist them.
My favorite chapter of this book is Chapter 12, which goes deeply into the power of prayer. It begins by telling the story of Ruth Graham Bell's father, a missionary surgeon to China and later editor of two Christian magazines. Even if he had to rise at 4:30 a.m., this doctor would insist on starting his day by reading his well-worn Bible and praying earnest prayers to God. The chapter goes on to remind us that Jesus was faithful in prayer. Prayer is "talking with God," gaining new strength from Him, sharing our needs with Him, offering praise and thanksgiving to Him, and confessing our sins to Him.
Any person who watches the news today knows that we are living in troublesome times. That is why this new Graham book is oil on troubled waters. It assures us that God is, indeed, still in control of His world, and that we, as His redeemed children, are under His watchful care. It shows us how to use prayer, service, witnessing, Bible study, and Christian living as ways to dispel anxiety and fear. We can make The Journey together with the Lord. Dr. Dennis E.

Susan Anderson5 Stars Out Of 5September 30, 2010Susan AndersonThe Journey has stories of Dr. Graham's life and experience that with the support of Bible verses explain how a Christian with the help of God can deal with an uncertain world. It talks of complex Christian concepts and made them understandable. I plan to give it to my children and siblings for Christmas.
