About this title

Synopsis:

Billy Graham shares God’s gentle, reassuring promise of spiritual calm—of authentic personal peace—amidst a personal life wracked with too much stress, too many burdens, too great a heartache.

In Peace with God Billy Graham asks God to help this book “find its way into the hands and hearts of a lost, confused, and searching world...men, women, and young people everywhere [who] thirst for peace with God.”

In spite of a life drenched with responsibilities and rewards, are you thirsting? Searching for some nameless thing that is more important than anything in life? You are not alone. All mankind is seeking the answer to the confusion, the moral sickness, the spiritual emptiness that oppresses the world. All humanity is crying out for guidance, for comfort...for peace.

Reverend Graham shares God’s gentle, reassuring promise of spiritual calm—of authentic personal peace—amidst a personal life wracked with too much stress, too many burdens, too great a heartache.

“I know men who would write a check for a million dollars if they could find peace,” writes Reverend Graham. “Millions are searching for it. But we Christians have found it! It is ours now and forever. We have found the secret of life! ... When your spouse dies or your children get sick or you lose your job, you can have a peace that you don’t understand. You may have tears at a graveside, but you can have an abiding peace, a quietness.

“God’s peace can be in your heart—right now... Whatever the circumstances, whatever the call, whatever the duty, whatever the price, whatever the sacrifice—His strength will be your strength in your hour of need. “It’s all yours, and it’s free. You don’t have to work for it.... Do not put it off.”

Review:

Billy Graham wrote Peace with God: The Secret of Happiness in 1953, a time that is often remembered today for its innocence and simplicity. Yet Graham's book, which is essentially an explanation of Christian grace, reminds readers that the stress and anxiety we face today are abiding aspects of the human condition, as challenging in the 21st century as they were in the Eisenhower era. "You are not alone," Graham writes. "All mankind is traveling with you, for all mankind is on [the] same quest. All humanity is seeking the answer to the confusion, the moral sickness, the spiritual emptiness that oppresses the world. All mankind is crying out for guidance, for comfort, for peace."

Graham answers those cries with a comprehensive story of humanity's sin and redemption in the person of Christ. Like a traditional sermon, Peace with God includes three sections that are intended to change the reader's heart: "Assessing the Situation" (of fallen humanity); "Advancing the Solution" (to the problems of sin); and "Applying the Antidote" (of Christian belief and spiritual power). By the end of the book, Graham offers "Peace at Last." His exhortation to believe is powerful and decisive: "It's all yours, and it's free. You don't have to work for it," he explains. At Graham's conclusion, the reader may come to understand that peace and freedom, as much as stress and anxiety, are abiding aspects of the human condition, and really can be found. --Kevin Attwood
