Publisher's Description

USA Today Bestseller List.  Many have written about Billy Graham, the evangelist. This is the first book about Billy Graham, the father, written from the perspective of a son who knew him best.

As a beloved evangelist and a respected man of God, Billy Graham’s stated purpose in life never wavered: to help people find a personal relationship with God through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. This was a calling that only increased over time, and Billy embraced it fully throughout his active ministry and beyond. Yet Billy pursued his life’s work, as many men do, amid a similarly significant calling to be a loving husband and father.

While most people knew Billy Graham as America’s pastor, Franklin Graham knew him in a different way, as a dad. And while present and future generations will come to their own conclusions about Billy Graham and the legacy that his commitment to Christ has left behind, no one can speak more insightfully or authoritatively on that subject than a son who grew up in the shadow of his father’s life and the examples of his father’s love.  This vulnerable book is a look at both Billy Graham the evangelist and Billy Graham the father, and the impact he had on a son who walked in his father’s steps while also becoming his own man, leading ministries around the world, all of it based on the foundational lessons his father taught him.

"My father left behind a testimony to God," says Franklin, "a legacy not buried in a grave but still pointing people to a heaven-bound destiny. The Lord will say to my father, and to all who served Him obediently, ’Well done, good and faithful servant’ [Matthew 25:21]."

Author Bio

Franklin Graham, president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse, is also president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The fourth of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham’s five children, Franklin is the author of several books, including the bestselling autobiography Rebel with a Cause and the 2013 release of Operation Christmas Child: A Story of Simple Gifts. He and his wife, Jane Austin, live in Boone, North Carolina, and have four children and twelve grandchildren.

Donna Lee Toney, a colleague of Franklin Graham for more than thirty-seven years, has been involved in the ministries of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and has been in literary collaboration with them since 1982, most recently on the release of the New York Times bestseller Where I Am and the bestselling The Reason for My Hope: Salvation with Billy Graham.

From Franklin Graham

For the last twelve years, I have been working on Through My Father's Eyes, a book about lessons I learned from my father. I'm very grateful that God gave me parents who set an example, not only for us at home but for the whole world to see. My father taught me about God and His Word. He taught me never to question the truth and authority of God's Word. God says it - that’s it. No arguing. Not only did he teach me about the Word of God, but he was faithful to follow it in his life. Even if he didn't understand it all, he still believed it.

I learned from my father how to lead a ministry and the importance of accountability to supporters. I also learned from the generosity he demonstrated to the nurses and caregivers who assisted him at home. These people became like our family. All of us children love them, and Daddy loved them.

The most important thing my father taught me is that Jesus Christ is God's Son. He took your sins and mine to the cross, shed His blood for our sins, died in our place, and God raised Him to life. He taught me that we needed to preach that message with urgency until Christ returns. That's exactly what I plan to do.

—Franklin Graham, March 2018
