I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I always have respected Billy Graham and admired his work, but now I have been provided insight into his heart and soul. Beginning with his childhood, Graham describes how God worked in his life to take him to international prominence as an evangelist. He is undoubtedly the greatest evangelist of the 20th century, and the events described in this book are nothing short of miraculous. Many of us grew up with Billy Graham, and may have simply taken his ministry for granted. Here in this volume however, we see how God was moving powerfully through a humble, single-minded Baptist preacher to shake the world for Christ. If you have a heart for evangelism, you won't want to miss this book. If you don't have a heart for evangelism, then reading this book may very well change your priorities. This title already is quickly becoming a classic.
Although, he says over and over that his ministry was not about the 'big names' and 'big venues' there is much mention of both. I am sure that with his ministry and his history with the millions of lives that he touched it would difficult to remember, let alone list the countless unfamiliar names and lives that he interacted with.
I would have liked to hear more about the personal Billy Graham as opposed to the professional Billy Graham.
Still; it was not time wasted.
The voice acting was quite awful. The introduction and epilogue, both by Billy Graham himself, exuded warmth, friendliness, and an easiness with the words that simply emphasized the narrator's clumsiness and woodenness through the heart of the text.
A pleasant surprise that was not really a surprise at all.
The reading was very choppy, like a TV reporter that you can tell is just reading off a teleprompter. There was no heart or life in his voice; he was just reading words off of a page.
Probably not. The book was informational and gave insight into Rev. Graham's humanity, but it was not particularly emotionally gripping.
it was written well and it connects the man to his life
yes because God used him greatly
it made it personal as if you are sitting next to them
I was reading alongside a hard copy of the book and it was confusing because the book is a revised version and has more than what the audio has
This is a very inspirational story. Billy Graham has lived an amazing life, and it is great to be able to hear the full story.
