"My prayer is that this book will be read by a generation that has never heard of Billy Graham…. I also write for those who are broadly attached to the Christian faith, and for those who have had only a small or short brush with faith in their lives. Billy impacted everyone from Catholics and Lutherans to Bible Church Evangelicals and Assembly of God Charismatics. As I hope you will hear clearly in what follows, he touched people like me with very little religious background. He was the Pastor to Presidents and a spiritual guide to celebrities. But more than everything else, he was a friend of Jesus and passionately devoted to telling Jesuss story to everyone he possibly could in all the world."
Lon Allison, from the introduction
Billy Graham said, "You have no idea how sick I get of the name Billy Graham, and how wonderful and thrilling the name Christ sounds to my ears." So, then, why another book about him?
Lon Allison, an evangelist himself, and popular evangelical pastor in Wheaton, Illinois, has learned much from Billy. Allison retells the highlights of what has been, by any objective account, a fascinating life, and tells it is a way that resonates with the Graham legacy of serving God and seeking to spread the Good News. Every stage of Grahams life is included, even the rough spots, with appreciation and a desire to answer the question: What can we learn from the life and ministry of Billy Graham? What is his legacy? What was his message and how might it still be relevant for today.
Foreword by Dr. Leighton Ford and Jean Graham Ford.
"Lon's compelling reflections of Dr. Graham's life, ministry, and character give us an up close and personal acquaintance with one of history's most significant proclaimers of the Gospel. Lon artistically weaves stories of his friendship with Billy in the context of Dr. Graham's relentless passion to bring people to Christ. You will find this read to be highly inspirational. I'm honored to recommend it." -Joe Stowell, President, Cornerstone University

"Read this book and be inspired to follow in the footsteps of one of the great ones." -Kevin Palau, President, Luis Palau Association
"Billy wanted Jesus and his Gospel to shine. In this book, you will see Jesus shine forth, and it will be an encouragement to Christians and a helpful explanation for non-Christians." -Ed Stetzer, PhD, Billy Graham Chair of Church, Mission, and Evangelism, Wheaton College
