Famous evangelist Billy Graham is coming out with a new book titled Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond, which his son, Franklin Graham, revealed he had been working on since before his 95th birthday.
"It was great to be able to visit my father this weekend at his home," Franklin wrote in a Facebook message on Sunday.
The message continued: "He said, 'When I die, tell others that I've gone to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ — that's where I am.' Jesus Himself said, 'Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. ... I go to prepare a place for you. ... I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also' (John 14:1–3)." more >>
Imagine that a loved one dies, and years later you receive a letter they wrote before they passed. That's how writer Anne Morse describes My Final Word, the new book she co-authored posthumously with the late evangelical figure, radio commentator and former Nixon aide Charles Colson, which shares Colson's uncanny foresight and words of wisdom regarding many of today's critical issues — most notably religion.
The book is comprised of memos, or mini-essays, written by Colson that hadn't before been published or used in any formal capacity. "He used his memos as a sort of diary at times," Morse, a journalist and longtime writer for Colson, told The Christian Post. Colson would routinely dictate his thoughts using a voice recorder and later have them transcribed, she explained.
"He did a lot of dictating daily. We had thousands [of memos] to choose from." Morse told CP that those memos had never been turned into a script for BreakPoint, Colson's Christian worldview daily radio commentary, or used in his column for Christianity Today. Hence the impetus for the book. more >>
A group of students in Duke University's freshman class are speaking out publicly about their refusal to read a novel that was selected as the freshman summer reading book because the book's pornographic content violates their Christian beliefs and moral principles.
In April, Duke University announced that the book, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, an autobiographical novel written by New York Times best-selling author Alison Bechdel about her relationship with her father, was the one book selected from a list of six titles to be the class of 2019's "Common Experience" summer reading book.
Although Duke's summer reading program is not required, the purpose behind the program is to give incoming students the opportunity to discuss the book in small groups during their orientation before school starts. A special printing of the book was mailed over the summer to all incoming freshman. more >>
NEW YORK — More than 30 years ago, former atheist David Ireland was just like any other nonbeliever — disinterested in God and far removed from faith. But in 1982, while completing his first degree in mechanical engineering at age 20, he found Christ.
"I remember the day. It was July 6, 1982, at 10 p.m. I sat on the edge of my dormitory bed and I said 'God, if you're real, change me.' And he did. From that moment on I started sharing my faith with others and started living for Jesus," recalled Ireland during an interview with The Christian Post about his latest book, The Weapon of Prayer: Maximize Your Greatest Strategy Against the Enemy

From the Christian film producing brothers behind "Facing the Giants" and "Fireproof," comes a new prayer strengthening book, The Battle Plan for Prayer, inspired by their upcoming film to be released later this month.

The book is inspired by the brothers' fifth film, "War Room," to hit theaters Aug. 28.
Co-author Alex Kendrick commented to The Christian Post, "Our culture today reveals that we are not heading toward being in agreement with the Bible. There has never been a better time to pray." more >>
