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).
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.

Although it has been many years since Billy Graham has retired from the pulpit, the heartbeat of his years in ministry is sincerely described in his 2013 book release, The Reason for My Hope.
Possibly the most highly regarded Christian leader of several generations, Billy Graham continues to meet us at the most personable level as He so vividly describes the reasons Christ died for us and what that means for those who choose to follow Him on Earth. Graham's humble heart is displayed in one of the first pages of the books where he states, One of the greatest privileges of my life has been the opportunity to associate with numerous men and women...and I thank God for the contribution these countless individuals have made to my life.
In this extraordinary book, Billy Graham walks his readers through controversial and pondered topics of people of all walks of life such as: the battle between good and evil, the meaning of the cross, the teachings of Jesus while on the cross, the reality and myths of Heaven and Hell, the second coming of Christ, and most importantly, He outlines very clearly why salvation is truly the most important gift given to mankind.
The Reason for My Hope is the best book I have read in years. I could not put it down, and I constantly found myself underlining passages that I wanted to reflect on. I plan on buying many copies of this book to give to friends. This book is the perfect read for persons of every generation, and it has become a favorite in my personal book collection. This is one of those rare books that you can discuss with both a teenager and a grandparent. Perhaps that's why people of all generations today are still able to identify with Billy Graham; he has the rare gift of meeting each person right where they are to explain and plead for people to proclaim Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

MillstreetreaderAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Graham delivers a strong message of truthFebruary 7, 2014MillstreetreaderAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Billy Graham has spent his life preaching the message of forgiveness and salvation. Now in his mid-nineties and not physically strong enough to continue the crusading life, he has NOT put aside his desire to share Christ's promise. Instead he shares through his writing, something he can do from his armchair at home. His new title The Reason for My Hope shows clearly that there is only one reason for true hope and that is Christ's death on the cross.
Graham warns that too many are trying to make Christianity into their own designer religions with a main focus on belonging, not believing. People search for the spot where they fit right in, where they can enjoy activities and socialization, and feel good about themselves. But that is not what we are called to do. Graham reminds us that Christianity is not a spectator sport; we cannot buy a ticket and remain on the sidelines. Becoming a Christian means changing our lives completely -- a butterfly kind of metamorphosis. Christ is not someone you can relegate to a corner of your heart and life.
Graham also warns that our busy lives which often leave no time for reflection or prayer are harmful. The pop culture that surrounds us can be much more dangerous than we think, for some equaling a 21st century version of pagan worship. There have been several recent books lately offering glimpses into Heaven. Graham makes clear the path to that future, but also earnestly forces us to consider the alternative that no one seems to take seriously. While the writing is easy to read, this is not a book to be read for pleasure and then put aside. Just like his crusades, the book asks us to look inside our hearts and to listen to the warnings.
I received this book from Book Sneeze for my honest opinion.

by Billy Graham
Billy Graham does a great job explaining salvation, why salvation is his reason of hope. In the eight easy, to read chapters he defines sin, hell and most of all salvation. I found the book hard to put down when you start to read. Billy has been telling people about Jesus Christ and salvation for about 70 years and has not lost anything in his enthusiastic description of salvation in this book. I think this should be necessary reading for all believers and non-believers. Billy has many stories of redemption and repentance that he shares with his readers. Billy, in his 90's, still can give a strong reason for accepting Jesus Christ as savor.
He gives many thought provoking statements about how things in America are heading down the moral ladder and why we need salvation. The book is not long but packed with the greatest reason for eternal life.
