An Important Warning for our Times

Billy Graham's Storm Warning Is a revised and updated version of the 1992 book by the same title. It is even more relevant today than when it was written. The world is filled with portents of disaster: war, hunger, natural disasters, broken families. This list is long. Graham urges Christians to wake up and follow the dictates of Jesus Christ however difficult that may be.

In the last several chapters of the book, Graham gives an excellent description of the horrors that accompany the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Relating the troubles in our own times to John's vision is excellent. Using the images from Revelations, Graham makes you feel the urgency for Christians and the whole world to take the message seriously. We may be living in the end times. It is a time to renew our faith and live as Jesus taught.

This is a book that should make us all think about how we want to live and what we can do to prepare ourselves for Christ's coming. I very much enjoyed the book and highly recommend it. It's a book that will make you think.

I reviewed the book as part of Thomas Nelson's Book Sneeze program.
