The Name is Jesus

I had lunch with Franklin Graham this week. He's on a book tour promoting his latest, titled "The Name." The name is "Jesus" and it's about the power of that name and what it does to people who hear it.

The book also has a chapter on Islam. It is one of the best things I've read on the subject of a religion, philosophy political agenda that too many are afraid to speak about. Franklin Graham tells the truth about Islam, its beliefs and objectives. I encourage you to read "The Name."

Franklin is warm and friendly, but he is no diplomat. He says what he believes and thinks. In Washington, especially, that is unusual and welcome.

Franklin Graham openly and powerfully speaks of Jesus Christ and his salvation, no matter whom he is talking to. And he practices true compassion through his Samaritan's Purse organization. This is a remarkably open and direct man. You'll like "The Name," especially if you love the one the name represents. I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
