Unto the Hills is simple to understand devotional that gives encouragement for every Christian believer. It is a helpful reading for spending a quiet time alone with God as each entry presents a Scripture, a message and a prayer. It can be used as an introduction for more in-depth study of the Word.

Unto the Hills by Billy Graham was supplied to me by Book Sneeze a few months ago. I have to tell you, I am not a highly religious person, but I found myself drawn to Unto the Hills when I saw it available on Book Sneeze. It is a very well layed out, well written, and easy to follow daily devotional. As is the case with with any scripture, Billy Graham adds his insight and wisdom as to the meaning of each scripture. For a religious novice, I found the material very easy to handle and intersting. With that being said, it didn't grab me and pull me in like others daily books (not devotionals) have done in the past. To write a review on a book that is truly designed to be read over the course of 365 days is challenging, and the information I submit is solely based on reading selections throughout the book at random. While that may not be the sole intent of Mr. Grahams work, it does give a very random sampling of the breadth and quality of the information. Topics will provide enlightenment, encouragement, and a great way be be inspired on a daily basis. I believe anyone can find value in Unto the Hills.

I have been using this devotional since January and have enjoyed it. The format is typical of a devotional and starts with a daily scripture. That is followed by the authors message and then the reading ends with a short prayer. Many devotionals out there are written simply to make the reader feel good without any real regard to biblical accuracy, and often scriptures seem to be taken out of context. With Billy Graham as the author I knew I could expect more. I trust his writing and the theology behind it. I highly recommend this book.

It is a 365 daily devotional which was originally published about 25 years ago, but this book is an updated edition. Each devotional begins with a Bible Verse (It is sort of like an introduction) that relates to what the devotional is going to be about then it ends with a beautifully written prayer. . Some of the devotionals are long, but they will keep you reading. And some of the devotionals inside this book are short--it depends what the topic is. Billy Graham is really good at writing devotionals. I suggest that anyone who has is a beginner to devotionals, or someone who is just looking for a devotional to read, to read this book, but I suggest this book to everyone! The devotionals will want you to read more and more! It is kind of suspenseful! What I do not like about this book, the cover can easily tear or rip. But the cover feels nice and soft. :) I received this book from the publisher book sneeze

look what i got in the mail recently courtesy of booksneeze, my advanced copy of unto the hills - a daily devotional penned by rev. billy graham. this actually a reprint of the 1996 hardbound classic. from the publisher: "The classic 365-day devotional from Billy Graham, now back in print. Simple, direct, encouraging yet challenging, this book offers itself as a heartening companion for your daily walk in the valley. This collection is a gentle but constant reminder that we can find help for all our needs as long as we remember to look up . . . unto the hills but especially unto the Lord. my two-cent's worth: i was never really the praying kind, or i must say a regular-praying kind, but this book is one sure way to jumpstart the habit again. something i can look forward to, as part of my daily morning routine. made to be read one entry per day (or maybe you can read an entire month in one sitting if you're up to it), unto the hills is made up of 365 daily reading, each comprised of a carefully chosen passage from the bible, an inspiring message, story or anecdote from dr. graham and ends with a prayer made especially for the book. an inspirational read and an ideal gift to just about anyone you know. i give it a cozy spot in this corner's readers lounge which is my equivalent to a four star rating.

Let's face it; you can't really miss the mark when reading a book by Billy Graham. And Unto the Hills Daily Devotional is no exception. It's a fabulous tool for all Jesus followers. Each daily devotional provides a Scripture followed by a commentary relevant to the Bible quote, then ends with a prayer. In true character to Dr. Graham's down-to-earth style, this book makes for easy (but interesting) reading. Its pages echo a tone of characteristic purity - characteristic of Billy Graham and, of course, of Jesus. Recurring themes pop up periodically such as angels, salvation, faith, family, suffering etc. Some of the devotionals delve into several Bible passages to provide an overall sense of what God is saying. Others provide fascinating illustrations through parables or real-life stories. Poignant quotes from other men of God - some well known, others lesser known - also sporadically lace the pages throughout, enriching the read. Unto The Hills would benefit anyone-including unbelievers (it makes a great evangelistic tool) and even pastors. But it's especially a must-have for new believers. I received this book in exchange for my review as a Thomas Nelson Booksneeze reviewer. Janey L. DeMeo M.A. Copyright © February 2011

Coming from the heart of Billy Graham, you just can't go wrong. As I write this review, I can say I haven't honestly read every days devotional...but I have read several, and in the past have been through them all. Simple laymans terms abound. Easy scripture and analogy to understand and plain basic truths that are unquestionable and apply easily to your every day life. He covers everything from the plan of Salvation to daily anxiety and worry. I know that I will enjoy (already am) going through this guide this year and hope to keep it in good condition and around to use again in the future or share with my friends and family. By the way, it has a beautiful cover design and would also make an awesome gift book!

I recently received Unto The Hills, a daily devotional by Billy Graham. As it is a 365-day devotional, I have not read every single entry, but I've gotten a sense of it. This is a reprint. Entries are fairly bite-sized, so you won't lose focus and their style is meditative rather than declarative, for the most part. I don't often get much value out of declarative devotionals, so I'm glad this one leaves a little more room for our own thoughts and feelings. There are times when Graham is very clear about his thoughts and beliefs (and I'm not sure I always agree), but many times he just presents a story and relates it to our lives and then signs off with a prayer. Unto the Hills is pretty much exactly what you'd expect it to be. A typical daily devotional. Not the most inspired or modern devotional I've ever read (Graham is definitely not a part of my generation), but you could certainly do much, much worse. Full disclosure: Thomas Nelson provided me with a free review copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. I was not required to give a positive review.

This daily devotional is definitely a keeper. I have enjoyed going through each daily devotional as I begin this new year. Each day's devotion is designed to encourage and lift you up, which is exactly what it does. Billy Graham is not only a great speaker, but a great author, and his devotional is proof of this. Each devotional contains a Bible verse, a page-long message from Graham, and a prayer to begin your day. One of the things I love most about this book is that it has dates. Not every devotional has dates -- you can start it whenever you want. I love that this one has each page dated. It helps me stay on track and keep track of the days I've already read. I also like it because I will definitely use it again and again. Some devotionals are hard to follow and just seem like a bunch of random thoughts put together. Each of these 365 devotions are well thought out and are practical for each day. This devotional has already helped me to stay in the Word this new year and I'm loving it!

Although I just got the book in the mail today, I was please at how well its wrote with having a scripture on top of the page, and the devotion based on that scripture. Every page has at least 2 references (the main one on top of the page, & the one or more in the devotion). At the very end of each page is a lovely prayer for the end of the day. There are some pages with the main scripture, then a couple in parathineses, had a nice explanation. The devotions I liked the best are the ones that are at the start of a new season & are family based.

Unto the Hills is a daily devotional book written by Billy Graham. It is the second edition of this book, and its message is definitely timeless. Each day begins with a short scripture then offers a short devotion, and ends in a prayer. This book is what I have looked for since I began searching for the ideal daily devotional book. I have wanted a devotional that was short but thorough, and that has been difficult to find...until now. Billy Graham demonstrates, in this book, why he is indeed America's most beloved spiritual leader. I foresee many years of using this particular daily devotional and would recommend it (and probably give it as a gift) to everyone I know. It is a classic and will be on my bookshelf for many years to come.

It's a book that teaches you that though being on the hills and mountain tops are our beautiful experiences in life, sometimes we have to go through the valley. And the valleys of life are where fruit is produced. I found that the messages were always right on time. It's been 25 years since the author first wrote the book, and publishers, Thomas Nelson, has re-released this classic. Billy Graham has taken over 50 years of ministry notes, study and sermons, along with a little bit of help from his wife, and combined it all into 365 meditations. In the second edition, you'll find a few minor changes that bring more clarity to the devotional. Each day is broken down into a scripture, thought, and a prayer that are easy to read and understand.
