Billy Graham: A Parable of American Righteousness

by

Billy Graham: A Parable of American Righteousness Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"[T]his baggy book, just reissued, remains the most vivid portrait [of Graham]. In it, Frady...presented Graham...as both a simplistic man of earnest goodwill and a sincere believer, and as perhaps the greatest salesman of the twentieth century." Benjamin Schwarz, The Atlantic Monthly (read the entire Atlantic Monthly review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marshall Frady's epic biography of the most prominent and popular religious leader in America.

With unparalleled access to Billy Graham and his family and associates, Frady presents an intimate and multifaceted portrait of the man, from his childhood upbringing in the midlands of North Carolina to his ascent to national recognition.

Frady's narrative encompasses the man, his spiritual mission, and his political involvements and bears witness to the preeminent position Graham has held in American life for more than five decades. This remains the most compelling and definitive biography of him to date.

Review:

"Billy Graham is our nation's least studied national institution. Marshall Frady has finally given him the kind of attention he deserves." Garry Wills, The New York Times
