Just in time for the first anniversary of Billy Grahams death, Allisons reflection on the life and work of Americas pastor is now available in paperback.
New preface by the author, new to this edition.
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 why another book about him? Lon Allison, 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 in 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.
"Many will welcome the intimate details of his life revealed by Allison. Their close relationship allows the author to present a birds-eye view of the evangelist." David Gibson, Catholic News Service
