Publisher's Summary

Billy Graham Was the World’s Best-Known Evangelist - Loved and Admired by Millions. But Very Few Knew Him Personally.

Pastor and bestselling author Greg Laurie was one of those fortunate few, blessed with an insider’s view of Billy Graham’s world for more than two decades. 

With the same painstaking research and eye for detail that distinguishes his previous biographies, Steve McQueen: Salvation of an American Icon and Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon, Laurie now turns to the life of his beloved mentor, offering the intimate perspective of a disciple and friend.

As a strapping North Carolina farm boy, Graham surrendered his life to Jesus at a camp meeting led by a blustery itinerant preacher, but he never lost the mischievous twinkle in his eye or his fun-loving air.

Laurie sheds light on Graham’s lesser-known struggles - such as a broken heart before he met the love of his life and a crisis of faith from which he emerged stronger than ever. From the evangelist’s private challenges and public successes to his disappointments and joys, Billy Graham: The Man I Knew provides a vivid portrait of one of history’s most remarkable Christian lives.

Very well done

The lay out, the information,and the performance made this a book that I couldn't put down. I came away from this with a very humble heart and a deeper love to serve with our King Jesus. I only knew of Billy Graham by name, now I felt like I unerstand hI'm more, and how he walked a exlempentry life that shows us today how to walk. Thank you Greg Laurie for writing a book we so much need for today.

Informative Bio

This is an excellent book. Greg Laurie is able to zero in on Graham’s life in such a way as to give it a very well rounded but concise manner. Graham’s life was one lived in such a way as could produce a 30 hour book easily. And he makes Graham human. This couldn’t be easy. Wonderful all the way around.
