Hello All,

The last book of 2018 is:

‘Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond’ by Billy Graham

As you probably know, Billy Graham died on 21st February 2018 and as a sort of tribute to him, we are reading one of his books!

This book is about eternity and how this is discussed and highlighted in all 66 books of the Bible. The book shares the core message Billy Graham preached over the decades and it is also a reflection of his mature faith. The book was written shortly after his 95th Birthday and talks about eternity and death, Billy Graham said “When I die, tell others that I’ve gone to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ—that’s where I am.”

The next Bookclub & More meeting will be at 10.30am on Saturday 20th October Mughead Coffee Shop 359 New Cross Road SE14 6AT.

Background to the book:

Billy Graham was an American Evangelist and ordained minister who preached around the world. It is estimated that he preached to 215 million people in 185 countries. He oven preached in indoor and outdoor rallies and also had a radio and television ministry. He was also a Pastor to Presidents from  Harry S Truman to Barack Obama. Billy Graham is one of the most influential Christian figures of the twentieth century. The Gallup poll listed him as on of the ‘Ten most admired men in the World.

During his life, Billy Graham wrote a total of 33 books; many of which were best sellers. The book we have chosen ‘Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond’ is a reflection on eternity which was his ultimate destination.
