What a Blessing.... Nov 1, 2006
I was blessed to be with my mother during the last 3 weeks of her life this past October. She loved the Lord with all of her heart. During those weeks, I saw so many awesome things happen. The biggest one was the peace of God that was in my mother's room on the morning of October 5th (the day she went home to be with the Lord). I had so many thougths running through my mind during those 3 weeks and this book answered all of them.
I could go on and on with all the many things that I learned about my mother during this time, but what got to me the most was how Mr. Graham describe his mother's "home going". Now I understand why my mother was reaching toward heaven on that great morning.
I thank God for the journey, for being there with my mother to share and see the power of God move and very peacefully call my mother from Labor to Rest.
God Bless You Mr. Graham.
An important book for all Christians to read Jun 13, 2005
This book is not about the hereafter in the sense that it doesn't go into extreme detail as to what life will be like in the hereafter and then from there, to the New Heavens and the New Earth. For that sort of details account and examination, always within a literal Biblical point of view, I would suggest Alcorn's Heaven. This book, another masterfully explored book by Billy Graham, focuses on the here and now in such a way as to examining out outlook toward that day when we die (or even better, thank the Lord, when He comes and Raptures the church). What does it mean in this, now, 21st century to live and to die? What are we to make of the culture of death that we see in the media and across the United States--from the tragedy of the late Ms. Shiavo to abortion on demand and on to euthanasia for our elderly for any old cause or reason? Basically such deaths come about because they are convenient, not based on literal Christian point of view toward the meaning of life and the dignity of dying and death. Graham asks and uses the Bible to answer questions such as "what does it mean to die as a Christian" verses "what does it mean to die without hope" (i.e. without Jesus Christ in your life as your Savior and King). For those who are dying with Jesus as the Savior, as examined by Graham, there is peace even if the death is in the face of persecution by those who do not see the light. For those who are dying without, well, there is only a slow decline into darkness, as Graham explains using the truth of the Bible. Thus, Mr. Graham is not afraid to ask questions nor is he afraid to look for answers through the written words of the Lord and through those He has touched through the ages to be His messengers, great and small. I would suggest anyone to take this book and seriously read it, examine what it has to say about death, dying, and eternity...work it into reading such books as Deadline and Heaven by Randy Alcorn...and really then falling on your hands and knees for a true talk with the Lord. Here and now you need to understand the eternal truths of living and dying and eternity. Graham points the way for the reader to go on and to use the Bible so that it shows the reader the foundations of truth and of forever.
Reasons to Believe Mar 20, 2005
I read this book in the hardback edition when it was called FACING DEATH (AND THE LIFE AFTER), and all these years later, I still myself talking about it.
Around that time, I attended a wedding where a member of the bride's family died of a heart attack at the reception (it was as bad as it sounds, believe me). But he didn't die right away. And he spoke before he was gone. It was obvious by what he said and how he said it that he was telling us what he could see: what lies ahead. Billy Graham, a man who has presided over many deathbeds in his long career as a preacher, writes of his experiences at such moments. And it was stunning to me to read of the similarities.
I've read several of Dr. Graham's book and I've been struck at the depth and complexity of his writings. As an evangelist, he keeps his messages simple and straightforward, but as a writer, he can delve into his subjects more deeply and more thoughtfully.
It's a great book that gives you so much to think about. And find comfort in.
Read this BEFORE you lose someone. Oct 16, 2003
Billy Graham takes a gentle yet uplifting look at death, loss and the afterlife, offering biblical advice and insight into this process we all must face at one point. Sadly I have had to face it sooner than I ever ever thought I would have to when I lost my wife of twelve years to liver failure in September of 2003. Reading this book after the fact offers little help or solace with my grief and one should really read it before facing the supposed Great Unknown. This is an ounce of prevention, what I am in need of is a few pounds of cure. Perhaps a re-reading of A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis is in order. Nonetheless, I recommend it.
Grief Aug 23, 2002
Death and grief are difficult to understand and to deal with. I lost my father and knowing that we will see him again in Heaven is what gives me comfort. We have lost many in the family to heart attacks and cancer. We do wonder why? We also know that God is taking care of us. He doesn't take our trials away he is with us through our trials. Once again Billy Graham has penned a book full of wisdom. I also found that a Christian grief journal, Write from Your Heart, A Healing Grief Journal, is helping me to get all of my thoughts and feelings organized and I am reaching the point of acceptence and making moves to grow spiritually, mentally and physically.
