LIKE metal forged in the heat of the fire are these messages which have come hot from the heart of Billy Graham. No one knows the problems of modern youth and the solutions to those problems better than Billy.
This volume of sermons most strikingly lays bare the need of present-day the need of present-day young people, and the abundant provision for that need in the Gospel of the grace of God.
These sermons are not untried. They have been preached from the lips and out of the heart of this young evangelist of America’s Southland. Literally hundreds of thousands of people in Youth for Christ rallies all across the North American Continent, the British Isles and the continent of Europe . . . audiences as small as one hundred people in obscure places and as large as sixty-five thousand in great stadium rallies . . . have heard the presentation of this glorious Gospel in the winsome, winning way that only Billy can preach. How many have been won to Christ through these sermons only eternity will reveal. On a single night as many as a thousand have responded to the Gospel invitation given by this young evangelist.
It is a rare combination to find sermons equally profitable either read or heard. Billy Graham’s are of this rare quality. To hear his message will convict sinners and thrill saints; to read them will produce the same results. It is for that reason that we covet the widest possible distribution of this volume. We believe that under God, by the Holy Spirit, that just as thousands have been saved through the spoken word, so now other thousands may be saved through the printed messages.
To that end we commend this volume to the blessing of God and for the uplifting of the Church of Jesus Christ.
