Ruth Graham has written six books including bestselling, In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart (Zondervan 2004) and award-winning, Step into the Bible (Zonderkidz 2007). Ruth is an experienced conference speaker and Bible teacher known for her honesty and authenticity. As founder and President of Ruth Graham & Friends, Ruth seeks to minister Gods grace and comfort to those who are hurting and feel alone as well as to equip those who desire to help those who are hurting. Ruth is the third child of Ruth and Billy Graham. She worked in publishing for 13 years as an acquisitions editor and for five years as donor relations coordinator for Samaritans Purse. She spent one year as Major Gifts Officer at Mary Baldwin College where in 2000 she graduated cum laude and received the Outstanding Adult Student award. She has an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters from Eastern University. Ruth has three grown children and six grandchildren. She and her husband, Greg, and his three sons live in Virginia.
Stacy Mattingly is an Atlanta-based writer.
A Legacy of Faith: Things I Learned from My Father is a smallish book from Zondervan's gift imprint, Inspirio. But don't let the size fool you. Each of the nearly 200 pages is packed with memories and insights about Billy Graham and his relationship with his daughter. Lovely family photos enhance the conversational text.
As an author who has written about families with a frequently-absent spouse, I was interested in the affect Billy Graham's recurrent absences had on his family. The author described, "On some level, too, I think, the distance in my relationship with my father caused me to see God, my heavenly Father, as being similarly removed from my day-to-day life and intimate needs It took years of purposeful effort to change my view of God as One who loved me from a distance."
Ruth learned several important truths from her father that she shares including: (1) the need for trust and dependence on God to make an impact on the world, (2) do your part and let God do His part, (3) we are all under grace, and (4) since we don't know a person's heart or motives, don't criticize.
Occasionally when life is lined with bumps, challenges, and disappointments, I wonder if I'd have done better with parents as spiritual as the Grahams. Ruth Graham's story reminds me that all people share two common denominators: pain, and the need for our Savior, Jesus Christ.
There are a number of admirable characteristics of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). Humility is one. Loyalty and friendship is another. The Grahams have enjoyed deep, lifetime relationships with a circle of quality people. Billy Graham, Beverly Shea, and Cliff Barrows have served God faithfully together for over 60 years, held together by four core values: integrity, accountability, purity of lifestyle, and humility.
Lovingly written, A Legacy of Faith is a vulnerable and poignant book that inspired me to read my Bible, trust God more, depend more on God, and step up my prayer life. The Graham family continues to impact our world for Christ. PeggySue Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
