Storm Warning

Storm Warning by Billy Graham immediately drew my attention, as I am interested in anything that has to do with the end times. As a huge fan of the Left Behind series, I was excited to read Billy Graham’s take on the various Storms (not merely the storms that are found in nature) that are occurring in the world today and compare them to the book of Revelations.

It’s important to note that this book was originally published in 1992 but it has been updated to include some of the most concerning issues which occurred between 1992 and now such as Hurricane Katrina, the economic situation facing Americans, and the various terrorist events that have been occurring. It’s interesting that many of the issues which were relevant to the apocalypse in the 90s have become that much more commonplace in the year 2010.

I liked the personal aspects he put into the book such as his daughter’s experience with a hurricane in Florida and his childhood relationship with storms when living on a farm. I found the four horseman explanations very interesting, as I never really studied them that in-depth, especially in relation to situations that are currently occurring.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I didn’t feel as if the writing was difficult to comprehend, and I was very interested to hear how the times we are currently living in can relate to the book of Revelations. This was the first book I ever read by Billy Graham, and to be honest, I was a little nervous to read one of his books thinking the analysis would be hard for me to comprehend, but as I said before, I easily understood the concepts and enjoyed the book from start to finish. In the future, I will definitely be reading more of his works.
