Book Review: Storm Warning by Billy Graham

Storm Warning by Billy Graham, is newly revised and updated from the original edition which was written in 1992 and published in June 1995.  It also includes a new foreword by Billy Graham’s son, Franklin Graham. 

Storm Warning focuses on the anxiety and fear that has been sweeping our nation for many years and how the headlines (past and present) line up with Biblical prophecies.  Graham talks about the state of our nation and world, the current recession, terrorist activities, natural disasters and how these and other “signs of the times” should be causing Christians to wake up and be on high alert.  As I read this book, I could sense the urgency in Graham’s writing and his concern with spreading the Gospel before the return of Christ.

As you would expect from Billy Graham, the salvation message is all through this book.  He repeatedly stresses that peace and eternal security are NOT available, apart from a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Although this book isn’t heavy on eschatology (the study of end times) nor does it debate the various beliefs on the rapture and tribulation, Graham does explain the significance of the four horsemen mention in the book of Revelation, as well as the signs of the end times, the Apocalypse and more.

Graham makes it very clear that although various political leaders are calling for “peace” – there will not be peace in the world.  In fact, Graham warns his readers that according to scripture things are most likely going to get worse before the return of Christ.  In spite of such dismal news – Graham stresses that our hope comes from the message of the Gospel, the God of mercy with whom we must have a relationship.

If you know someone who is searching and open to the message of the Gospel, this book could be a very good resource.
