The Reverend Billy Graham, who passed away on Wednesday, February 21, was best known for his ministry, preaching and crusades. It has been said that Graham was the most influential evangelist since the days of the early apostles. However, preaching was not his only impact on the world. Beginning in 1947 and spanning over six decades, Graham published 33 books that addressed a variety of subjects including salvation, angels, Heaven and Armageddon. He also wrote an insightful and fascinating autobiography. Below is a sampling of his works, many of which were best-sellers and award winners.

Peace With God – published in 1953
Searching for some nameless thing that is more important than anything in life? You are not alone. In this book, Graham shares God’s gentle, reassuring promise of spiritual calm, of authentic personal peace amidst a personal life filled with too much stress, too many burdens, too great a heartache.

Angels: God’s Secret Agents – published in 1975
In this classic book, Graham combines the fascinating experiences of those who are certain they have been attended by angels with what the Bible says about angels. There is a reassurance to Christians that through angels God is present. We can take comfort in the fact that, with the host of angels at God’s call, we are not alone.

Facing Death and The Life After – published in 1987
Our culture trains us to prepare for almost everything but death. Fear and denial are common human responses to the subject but what awaits us beyond this life? It is a journey into the unknown, or a glorious, spiritual pilgrimage to eagerly anticipate? In this book, Graham answers these questions and more objectively and compassionately.

Just As I Am – published in 1997
In this account of his life, Graham shares how he came from ordinary beginnings to have an extraordinary life of – all derived from his unshakable belief in Christ. This is a look into Graham’s life from the evangelist himself. Graham wrote this book when he was 79, so he had the majority of his life to look back on and reflect on what he had accomplished through his walk with Christ.
