Everyone has heard of Billy Graham, and many have actually heard him speak. In this book, I was able to dive into the life and experiences of the man who has been called "America's Pastor" for years. His childhood and early influences were all a part of the plan God had for his life. As you would expect to discover, he was just an "ordinary" kid who grew up in North Carolina, got an education, and was willing to follow God's direction for his life.
In his lifetime, Graham has influenced so many normal people in a positive way but he also had the chance to influence a number of important world leaders in a positive way also. His conversations have been newsworthy and high-profile, but the true measure of the impact of Billy Graham can only be measured in heaven.
This book is very detailed and well-documented. I love the way it takes the approach of using facts and stories to paint a complete picture of the influences that affected this man who influenced so many others.
