Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0785265228, Hardcover)Before offering a prayer at the inauguration of President George W.

As Graham reminded him, "That's the only thing we've got." In days of religious confusion and cultural relativism, Franklin Graham reminds us that there are absolutes in the kingdom of God.
