Franklin and Bessie’s Picks—November 2020

November 20, 2020


This November at Ruth’s Attic Bookstore, we’re featuring books picked by Franklin Graham and Bessie the Cow.

Each month, Franklin picks a book based on its inspirational message, while Bessie picks a book for children to enjoy.


Franklin’s Pick: Peace for Each Day by Billy Graham

Beloved evangelist Billy Graham understood the flurry of modern life and the constant temptation of busyness. In a world in which everyone seems to be rushing to finish their to-do list, answer their emails, and respond to their cell phones, peace is still possible. In Peace for Each Day, a 365-day devotional, Graham shares God’s gentle, reassuring promise of spiritual calm.

Each daily passage in Peace for Each Day invites you to joyfully engage with Scripture as you meditate on God’s peace–peace that can be found whatever the circumstances, whatever the calling, whatever the future holds.

As Graham wrote, “Millions are searching for [peace], but we Christians have found it! It is ours now and forever.” Peace for Each Day makes a beautiful gift book for men and women of all ages for:

    • Birthdays
    • Christmas
    • Mother’s and Father’s Day
    • Grandparent’s Day

With words from one of the most popular and respected authors of our time, Peace for Each Day invites you to receive a peace that no one can take away.


Bessie’s Pick: What a Beautiful Name by Brooke and Scott Ligertwood & Ben and Karalee Fielding, with illustration by Scott Ligertwood

Oliver and Leo are a courageous pair of best buddies, full of good ideas and always ready for their next great escapade. Building a rocket and shooting off into outer space is just a regular Monday in Oliver’s’ world…

But this particular Monday they venture across land, sky and sea on a mission to discover an elusive name – the Name above all Names.

Based on the Grammy Award winning song by Hillsong Worship, and paired with fun, colorful and meaningful art by Scott Ligertwood – this rhyming story allows you the opportunity to join Oliver and Leo as they experience firsthand the BEAUTY, WONDER and POWER of the Creator, and discover the Name he ultimately knew all along…

A book for parents and children alike to discover more about JESUS.
