I always find Billy Graham biographies to be exciting and inspiring. This one, aimed at young readers, is no exception. The author has researched her subject well and begins by telling of his early years on the farm in North Carolina and his conversion. Significant milestones in his ministry are detailed such as his roots with Youth for Christ. There are also brief accounts of several of his missions, such as Los Angeles in 1949, London and Scotland in the 1950s, New York in 1957, India and Australia in the later 1950s and his missions to Russia in the 1980s. You can read about the beginnings of his ministry on radio and television, although perhaps his influence through books and films could have been mentioned too.
It is interesting that the author presents some insights into the thoughts and feelings of Billy Graham's wife Ruth as she supports her husband during his remarkable ministry. At the end we see Graham as a national statesman as he addresses the nation following the tragic events of 9/11. The book finishes with further questions for discussion and a timeline. This is very good account of the man who has preached the gospel to more people than anyone else.
