Beyond all else Billy Graham studies the Bible, the supreme authority for his belief and action. Every day he reads five Psalms, covering the psalter in a month, and one chapter of Proverbs, the book that "shows us how to relate our own lives to our fellow men." He reads through a Gospel each week, using commentaries and modern translations, and constantly returns to the Acts of the Apostles. He annotates throughout the Bible. "Sometimes His word makes such an impact on me that I have to put the Bible down and walk around for a few moments to catch my breath." He learns great stretches by heart.
Carson clarifies the gospel from 1 Cor 15:1-19 with eight summarizing words: 1. Christological: The gospel centers on the person and work (the life, death, and resurrection) of Jesus Christ. 2. theological: The gospel tells us that sin is first and foremost an offense against God and that salvation is first to last the action of God, not our own. 3. biblical: The gospel is essentially the message of the whole Bible. 4. apostolic: The gospel is passed on to us by Jesus' disciples as authoritative eyewitnesses. 5. historical: The gospel is not philosophy or advice on how to find God, but rather news of what God has done in history to find and save us. 6. personal: The gospel must be personally believed and appropriated. 7. universal: The gospel is for every tongue, tribe, people, and individual. 8. eschatological: The gospel includes the good news of the final transformation, not just the blessings we enjoy in this age.
There was a man who had a reputation for being the best fisherman on a certain large lake. No one knew how he did it. The others caught maybe one or two fish while he always brought back his limit of large fish. The person who most wanted to find out his secret was the game warden. Without telling him who he was, he got the man to take him with him. Very early in the morning they crossed the lake in the fog. The warden noticed that he no fishing tackle. Well, they finally arrived at a secluded cove and the man opened up a box and pulled out a stick of dynamite. He lit it and threw it in the water. It exploded and a bunch of fish floated to the surface. The warden then told the man who he was and that he was in a lot of trouble. The man started to think, then reached into the box and pulled out another stick of dynamite. He lit it and handed to the warden saying, "Are you going to just sit there or are you going to fish?"
