Book Review: Peace with God

Written in simple English by the beloved Billy Graham, who just recently had a birthday, this is an excellent read. My copy is a Billy Graham Library Selection edition with a forward from Franklin Graham, Billy's son and President and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse.
I highly recommend this book that is designed to help us understand how we can have peace with God.  We each struggle to find that peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7 NKJV).
In less than 300 pages we are walked from the beginning of our "Quest" to the day after our new life begins.  I got the book, because it was free and I enjoy reading, plus I thought it would be good to see what insights Billy Graham might have about how to have peace with God.  Reading through it helped remind me of what an awesome God we have and how simple, yet profound it is to accept Christ as our Savior. 
Throughout the pages, we receive a working man's case for why Christ is the only way to have lasting peace. He talks about the "Indestructible Bible," "Dealing with the Devil," "What is Faith," "Enemies of the Christian," and "Hope for the Future," to mention a few of the chapters.
I would recommend this book for anyone who is searching, doubting, struggling, or who wants to be reminded of the simpleness of salvation.  Quick side note: Salvation isn't by works, but by faith in Jesus Christ. Christianity is the only faith background that is not works based!
