Synopses & Reviews
For well over fifty years, Billy Graham has preached the Gospel to millions of people around the world. Whether ministering to world leaders, Australian aborigines, or African Bushmen, his mission has always been simple: To spread the word of God. And he has. Now at age eighty-four, his pace may be somewhat slower; but true to his calling, Graham remains an integral part of his highly active ministry. This book, which is based on actual events that took place over several days and span a period of many years, offers a unique up-close-and-personal view of Billy Graham's complex life. It allows you to accompany the evangelist on two crusades; travel with him on a journey to Israel; and visit with him in his home, where he conducts business, but somehow finds time to relax with his wife and true helpmate, Ruth Bell Graham. A Day in the Life of Billy Graham transports you through time and over great distances to see the evangelist during his formative years, watch the incredible growth of his ministry, and witness his personal relationships with people of all creeds and from all walks of life. At its core, this work consistently demonstrates Billy Graham's unyielding belief that the power of God can and does transform people's lives.
