    ***“Heart My Heart” captures Billy’s heart and provides an intimate portrait of a man who loved Jesus, who lived by Jesus’ words*** Billy Graham, long known as America’s pastor, spent a lifetime preaching about his Friend and Savior, Jesus Christ, Christ’s message of salvation and life after death. His simple words of wisdom, such as “God loves you” were spoken with humility with their spirit captured in a quote Billy (as he preferred to be known) adapted from D.L. Moody. “Someday you will rea ***“Heart My Heart” captures Billy’s heart and provides an intimate portrait of a man who loved Jesus, who lived by Jesus’ words*** Billy Graham, long known as America’s pastor, spent a lifetime preaching about his Friend and Savior, Jesus Christ, Christ’s message of salvation and life after death. His simple words of wisdom, such as “God loves you” were spoken with humility with their spirit captured in a quote Billy (as he preferred to be known) adapted from D.L. Moody. “Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.” “Hear My Heart: What I Would Say to You” offers a compilation of Billy Graham’s articles that were “assembled to be released” upon his death. They span his ministry from 1955 to 2014 with words that illustrate his love for Jesus, his passion for the gospel and the biblical convictions he lived by. The legacy book is divided into six-parts. “When God Calls,” “The Power of the Gospel,” “Guard Yourself,” My Challenge to God’s People,” Upon Further Reflection,” and “The Graham Legacy.”Four of the sections begin with a chapter by those who knew him well such as J.I. Packer, John N. Akers, William Martin and Philip Yancy. While part five features why Billy founded Christianity Today, his views on evangelism and today’s “unhealthy tendency toward individualism,” his role in the Watergate crisis and what he would do differently if he had it to do over and much, much more. The last section is a compilation of tributes from family and close friends, such as senior news writer for Christianity Today, Tony Carnes who wrote about Billy and his wife Ruth’s friendship with Johnny Cash and June Carter. The story captures their friendship in Christ although Carnes writes, “their backgrounds couldn’t have been more different…Johnny came from the wild side while Billy…walked the straight and narrow.” These stories and more from those who knew him best portray a humble, Christ loving man who, unlike many, walked the walk he talked. Readers learn about Billy’s passions, his regrets and what he would have done differently. What his message of salvation and being “born again” really meant to him and why it impacted so many. “Heart My Heart” captures Billy’s heart and provides an intimate portrait of a man who loved Jesus, who lived by Jesus’ words and a man who introduced his Friend to everyone he met. It’s a book to be savored, cherished and shared. ‘Hear My Heart: What I Would Say to You,’ by Billy Graham & Those Who Knew Him Best, Howard Books, March 6, 2018, 288 Pages, 978-1476734309, $25.00“Gail’s Bookshelf” Midwest Book Reviews: "February 2018"Google+GailWelbornPinterest: GailWelbornTwitter: @GailWelbornFaceBook: Gail WelbornFaceBook Reviews: Gail Welborn
