Unto The Hills: A Daily Devotional by Billy Graham

I review for BookSneeze
Let’s face it; you can’t really miss the mark when reading a book by Billy Graham. And Unto the Hills; A Daily Devotional is no exception. It’s a fabulous tool for all Jesus followers.

Each daily devotional provides a Scripture followed by a commentary relevant to the Bible quote, then ends with a prayer. In true character to Dr. Graham’s down-to-earth style, this book makes for easy (but interesting) reading. Its pages echo a tone of characteristic purity – characteristic of Billy Graham and, of course, of Jesus.

Recurring themes pop up periodically such as angels, salvation, faith, family, suffering etc. Some of the devotionals delve into several Bible passages to provide an overall sense of what God is saying. Others provide fascinating illustrations through parables or real-life stories. Poignant quotes from other men of God – some well known, others lesser known – also sporadically lace the pages throughout, enriching the read.

Unto The Hills would benefit anyone—including unbelievers (it makes a great evangelistic tool) and even pastors. But it’s especially a must-have for new believers.

I received this book in exchange for my review as a Thomas Nelson Booksneeze reviewer.
