Of Revivals

Billy Graham: A Parable of American Righteousness by Marshall Frady

Reviewed by Benjamin Schwarz
The Atlantic Monthly

"An overly expansive southerner who flowered in the age of the often overly expansive New Journalism, Marshall Frady chose as subjects for his most ambitious, unrestrained, and ragged books three oversized fellow southerners: George Wallace, Jesse Jackson, and Billy Graham...." Read the entire Atlantic Monthly review.

    Billy Graham, while not of my theological upbringing, has a truth about him and is above reproach. Any book, publication or speech by him is worthy. "The Word" comes from many places and he is one of them. The publication by Frady should be very worth while.
