Overview

Before offering a prayer at the inauguration of President George W. Bush, Franklin Graham was asked by a fellow participant if he intended to pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Graham assured him that he would and encouraged this pastor to do the same. As Graham reminded him, "That's the only thing we've got." In days of religious confusion and cultural relativism, Franklin Graham reminds us that there are absolutes in the kingdom of God. The Name explains the significance of names in the Hebrew culture, centering on the meaningfulness of the name Jesus. Chapters focus on the different aspects of power in the Lord's name, such as "Healing in the Name" and "Salvation in the Name."

"Just being Billy Graham's son won't get me into heaven," Rev. Franklin Graham once declared. Certainly, the author of Rebel with a Cause can't be accused of resting on his father's laurels. Indeed, in addition to preaching and writing, Franklin serves full-time as the CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. In No Other Name, this father's son calls on the church to acknowledge the ultimate absolute of the Christian faith: that salvation lies in the name of Jesus. Even nonbelievers will be fascinated by Graham's discussion of the significance of names in Hebrew culture.

This book was excellent. Franklin does not mince words, he tells it like it is. He is not trying to be politically correct like most evangelists of this day and age. He is a true witness for CHRIST. HE DOES HONOR TO THE NAME !!! THE NAME BEING JESUS CHRIST. I loved the stories and examples that he gives about his experiences, especially when he gave the talk at Oklahoma City, at the Columbine Memorial Service. This book has depth and meaning. I have read it twice and plan to read it again. It is a must buy!!!!
