The Preacher and the Presidents: Billy Graham in the White House | [Nancy Gibbs, Michael Duffy]

The Preacher and the Presidents: Billy Graham in the White House

No one has ever been in a position to see the presidents, and the presidency, so intimately, over so many years. They called him in for photo opportunities. They called for comfort. They asked about death and salvation; about sin and forgiveness. At a time when the nation is increasingly split over the place of religion in public life, The Preacher and the Presidents reveals how the world's most powerful men and world's most famous evangelist, Billy Graham, knit faith and politics together.

    "Enjoyed the story. Didn't like the narration."

    I was very interested to hear Billy Graham's travels through so many presidents over the years. The narrator sounded like he was announcing a football game the whole time.

    "Boring..."

    I thought this book was incredibly boring, and they took some pretty cheap shots at one of the most prolific American figures, ever. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. After listening to both downloads, I still couldn't tell you what I learned from it. It was like listening to a lecture in preparation for an exam.

    "very interesting"

    very interesting view into the whitehouse; my only criticism - a small one - was that at one point the book seemd more about Nixon than Graham, as it seemed to go on and on about this one President.

    "Wish you guys had warned me"
    Would you try another book from Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy and/or L. J. Ganser?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy again?

    Not if I remember their names--which I'd prefer to forget


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It's well told.


    Any additional comments?

    Your description should have warned a liberal that this book is full of veiled Republican propaganda. Billy Graham may have tried to be neutral with the Democrats, but the writers sure weren't. I felt like I'd been duped into a massive waste of my time. I'm a strong Christian--just in case you wondered. Yes, there are strong Christians in the Democratic Party--we just believe, like the new Pope: that you see the strength of that commitment by how people treat those who are not as fortunate as they are. That was what Jesus taught.
