Product Description

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. "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

A native of South Carolina, Marshall Frady was a journalist for more than twenty-five years, writing for Newsweek, Life, Harper's, Esquire, The New York Review of Books, The Sunday Times of London, The Atlantic, and The New Yorker. He was a correspondent on Nightline; chief writer and host of ABC News' Closeup, for which he won two Emmys and the duPont-Columbia Award; and the author of six books. He died in 2004.
