The Name

( 3 )

Overview

Why does the name of Jesus stir both awe and animosity?

Franklin Graham faced that question himself in April of 1999, just days after the tragic killing of students at Columbine High School shocked America and the world.

Colorado's governor had asked Franklin to speak at the memorial service for families and friends. As a chilling drizzle soaked the crowd of 70,000, Franklin boldly urged all mourners to seek comfort, hope and salvation through ...

Overview

Why does the name of Jesus stir both awe and animosity?

Franklin Graham faced that question himself in April of 1999, just days after the tragic killing of students at Columbine High School shocked America and the world.

Colorado's governor had asked Franklin to speak at the memorial service for families and friends. As a chilling drizzle soaked the crowd of 70,000, Franklin boldly urged all mourners to seek comfort, hope and salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. Later he received both congratulations and criticism for his remarks. To Franklin's surprise, even clergymen complained that the emphasis on Jesus was offensive.

Later Franklin reflected,"Why is it when people curse using His Name, hardly anyone complains? But if you speak about Him with respect or pray in His Name, some people call it 'foul'?" The Name is Franklin's response to those questions.

The Name explains, reveals, and honors the most important Person who ever lived. It is an articulate, passionate, motivating, and moving tribute to the One who bears the Name above all names and before whom some day "every knee will bow."

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"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.

    Excellent reading

    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!!!!
