In this remarkable book, Graham reveals a personal side that few have seen before.
For thirty years, Billy Graham and David Frost fascinated television audiences with their conversations about God, the Bible, and Grahams decades-long ministry. Frost asked the questions that thousands of viewers wanted to ask. Graham answered them with authenticity and grace.
Along the way, Graham provided insight into life as an evangelist, a Christian father and grandfather, and a public figure in a changing culture. Most of all, Grahams words show what it means to live out your beliefswhether you speak to millions of people around the world or simply want to live faithfully at home and work.
With a chronology of Grahams life, a preface from Frost, and a foreword from his grandson, Tullian Tchividjian, this weaving of stories, interviews, and reflections will inspire you to respond to Gods call with no reserve.

WoofiejoAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good Overview Of Billy Graham's Life And His ThoughtsJanuary 1, 2015WoofiejoAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4There are a few individuals in America that have had this much impact on so many people around the world over such a long period of time. Graham was a friend to ministry leaders, political leaders and world leaders. In fact, Graham has appeared on Gallup's list of Most Admired People 57 times -- more than any other person in the world.
This book outlines several interviews that took place between David Frost and Billy Graham over 30 years. It provides a good snapshot of who Billy Graham is, some of the things he accomplished, and his beliefs across a wide range of issues. It also tells the story of how he evolved and matured in his faith and his style over the years. The interviews cover a range of topics including his relationship with many presidents (including Truman, Eisenhower, Nixon, Kennedy, Reagan, and Bush), his thoughts about civil rights, women's rights, family, parenting, marriage, moral issues and more. Billy led a very busy and accomplished life. In 1954, he led a London Crusade and preached every night for three months and later did a New York Crusade in Madison Square Garden without a break and preached for 16 weeks straight. It takes enormous energy to do that and I can't imagine anyone able to keep that schedule today. Graham became a trusted advisor and friend to many.
Even though there are a lot of different topics covered, I am still longing to hear one more interview that can uncover some of the deeply personal stories of Graham's experiences, conversations and frustrations. While he was a very public man, he was also very private and surely has many more interesting stories to tell.
A complimentary e-copy of this book was provided to me by David C Cook in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
