(Nashville, Tenn.) – Thomas Nelson, Inc. announced today that in October 2013 world-renowned preacher, evangelist and author Billy Graham will release his latest major trade book: "The Reason for My Hope: Salvation.”

"For over 70 years, Billy Graham has encouraged the world like no other,” says Matt Baugher, Senior Vice President and Publisher at Thomas Nelson, Inc. “He has always clearly exhibited two remarkable yet simple traits: a walking example of God's unconditional love toward others and a man saved by grace. It is this platform on which he built his entire ministry, and it is this foundation on which his latest words ring as true as ever. In “The Reason for My Hope,” Billy Graham once again brings an important message of salvation to the world, with his accessible writing style and words of truth. As his publisher, it is our deep honor to partner with this man who continues to be incredibly strong in mind and spirit.”

In what could be his final book, Billy Graham presents the core message that has guided his life and calling for over 70 years. Filled with new stories and timeless truth, Graham once again calls the world back to its spiritual priority as only he can. The release of “The Reason for My Hope” coincides with a massive campaign by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association that will mobilize millions of people in the U.S. to invite friends and neighbors into their home to hear the message of Jesus Christ through customized video and a new message from Mr. Graham.
“Who would refuse rescue?” This is the question Billy Graham asks throughout this book. The answer is sometimes surprising because there are actually people who refuse to be saved, even if they are in a hopeless situation. “Why?” Each chapter draws the reader in by posing questions for contemplation using relevant illustrations about what the world thinks in contrast to what the Bible says.
As Mr. Graham has expressed for decades, his purpose is to engage the reader in considering his or her life in light of the here and now and the hereafter. Who would refuse rescue from a plane crash, a sinking boat, an automobile fire, or an assassin’s bullet? True accounts are given that cause the reader to ask what they think and how they would respond to similar experiences that ultimately bring them to life’s most important question.
"Once again Billy Graham will impact the world with a timely message of hope and encouragement for these difficult times,” says David Moberg, Senior Vice President and Group Publisher for Thomas Nelson. “We are pleased that our forthcoming book, “The Reason for My Hope,” will be the centerpiece of a major media campaign that is spearheaded by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and which will reach millions of people this fall. What a tremendous tribute to Dr. Graham that in his 95th year he is still shaping the culture with the Christian message."
Thomas Nelson, Inc., (through its acquisition of Word Publishing in 1992) has been Dr. Graham’s trade book publisher since 1975, and has enjoyed numerous million-copy bestsellers with Dr. Graham over those thirty-five years. His most recent release “Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well” is a New York Times best seller and has sold more than 700,000 copies.
This new major trade release, with a hard street date of October 15, 2013, will be supported by an extensive national marketing campaign, including national advertising, multiple retailer merchandising options, and advance reader’s copy distribution. “The Reason for My Hope” will be simultaneously released internationally, and in Spanish through Thomas Nelson’s division, Grupo Nelson.
MATT BAUGHER, representing Thomas Nelson, is available for interviews.
