Unto the Hills by Billy Graham (review)

I have wanted a Billy Graham book for a long time. I don't buy many books (they aren't cheap) but I figured his books would be well worth the money for the content. So I got the chance to review his daily devotional, Unto the Hills, I jumped.
This is not the first printing of this devotional - that speaks volumes about any book, if you ask me! I have really enjoyed this devotional. Although it will take me a whole year to read, I have been reading it every day. This is made to fit every lifestyle; devotions are one page - anyone can fit that in! And it's not fluffy reading; it makes you think about your relationship with Christ and your worship.
These late days of December have focused their Scriptures in Revelation - end of times for the end of the year, I guess. Generally, I've avoided Revelation because I can't make sense of it one way or another - I know God wins. The 29th's devotion talks about the devil's power - we don't talk or think about it much, but he is powerful. However, he is not the Utmost Power - that's reserved for the One who defeated him once (and will do so again - soon). That is why I love this devotional; it's brought things to light I'd never thought of before. THIS is what a devotional should be - not fluffy make you feel good Christian lit - but REAL Christian literature made to improve your relationship with God.
