Hailed as "the world's preacher," Billy Graham's career has spanned more than five decades and his ministry of faith has touched the hearts and souls of millions. In Just As I Am, Graham reveals his life story in what the Chicago Tribune calls "a disarmingly honest biography."
With down-to-earth warmth and candor, Graham tells the stories of the events and encounters that helped shape his life. He recounts meetings with presidents, celebrities, and world leaders, including Harry S. Truman, Winston Churchill, Queen Elizabeth, and the Shah of Iran, and shares his own spiritual journey as he movingly reflects on his personal life and relationships. This is an inspirational and unforgettable portrait that will be treasured by readers everywhere.
This new updated edition includes Graham's role in pastoring the nation after the Oklahoma bombing and 9/11 attacks (including an appendix with the text of both nationally broadcast sermons), his knighthood, his decision to designate his son, Franklin, as his successor, his refusal to "retire," and much more.
It also contains a new afterword, written by Reverend Graham, that updates readers on what has happened in his life and at the BGEA in the ten years since Just As I Am was originally published.
