Throughout Billy Graham’s evangelical ministry, his roles as an evangelist and as “America’s pastor” have been well documented. However, the story that remains untold is the story of his leadership - both publicly and in private - as a minister and as a CEO.
For more than 50 years, Graham was CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and oversaw its worldwide gatherings and diverse media divisions. In addition, he was at the forefront of the robust "evangelical movement" that rose from obscurity in the 1940s to become a prominent social and political force 50 years later. Time magazine named Graham one of the top 10 leaders of the 20th century.
Graham’s passionate leadership style has been an inspiration to many, and now, in Billy Graham: Leading with Love, it is condensed into five essential principles. Based on interviews with Graham’s colleagues, associates, and friends, this unique insight into Graham’s life and ministry offers behind-the-scenes glimpses of his courageous leadership style and core beliefs.

Yes, because it gives a great example of what a great leader should be. I would recommend this book to all those who are in leadership roles.
Billy Graham, the book was about him and those who he has inspired and those who have inspired him. He is a great example of true humility and humanity, he is an inspiration to me and makes me want to be more like Jesus Christ, as he tried to be.
Mr. Sheperd does bring a "love" to the narration, he made it sound like he was a personal witness to all of the events read about. As if he were the proverbial "fly on the wall". It was an interesting listen. His voice was calm and soothing.
I will be listening to this book many times over. I love it and the narration was great, it matched the emotion of the book. Can't say enough. Thank you!
