Unto The Hills by Billy Graham review

 by Billy Graham
No matter your place in life, this classic collection of devotional readings is designed to bring you daily to that special place of renewal-to help you pause and gaze “unto the hills” for help and inspiration.
Each of the 365 daily readings in this inspiring collection offers a carefully chosen passage of scripture, a brief, thoughtful message from Dr. Graham, and a heartfelt prayer composed especially for this book. Distilled from a lifetime of study and ministry, these devotionals supply daily food for thought about living fruitfully and joyfully in an often fretful world.
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 Take

I usually love daily devotionals or books with short encouraging stories.  However, sadly this book was too much for me.  As I have sad before I didn’t grow up in a very religious family and while most daily devotionals that I have encountered generally have a story with a small underlying message.  I have to say that Unto The Hills is mostly a message about God with a few sentences in each story. 

While this wasn’t my book and I really struggled with it, many would find this to be a wonderful book that would help guide them in prayer and offer guidance.
