by William Paul McKay & Ken Abraham

Billy Graham has always been one of my favorite evangelists. As I was growing up, whenever his crusades were on television, my parents somehow knew, and we would make sure to watch. When I was a teenager, my parents and I took a trip to North Carolina to visit Billy’s childhood home, which had been relocated. It was fascinating to tour the home of such a powerful yet humble man of God.

When I found out his biography was available for review, I was excited to read more about his life, from childhood to the present. I loved reading about how he knew God was calling him to be an evangelist, and how he and his wife, Ruth Bell-Graham (now deceased), fell in love.

I also found it interesting and sad to read about his former friend, Charles Templeton, who turned from the faith to become an agnostic. The two men, Templeton and Graham, who were so similar in the beginning of their evangelistic days, couldn’t be more different at the end of their lives.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good biography and is interested in reading more about this humble man of God.
