Billy Graham is truly the world's pastor. In five decades, he has led his ministry around the globe, speaking in person to more than 200 million people. Yet his message has remained singular and strong, as he continually implores his audience to "choose Christ, as I did".
At 78, Graham now looks back on an incredible lifetime of personal relationships, whirlwind activity, ministry, leadership, and influence. In his warm and unassuming voice, he shares the stories of his beginnings in the church, and the overwhelming ministry he has had spreading the word of God as an evangelist. He describes the tolls this lifestyle took on his family -- and credits his remarkable wife, Ruth, for their tremendous accomplishments together.
Graham speaks of his embarrassing beginnings with Harry S. Truman, and friendships and associations with every U.S. president since Eisenhower, including anecdotes and behind-the-scenes drama of the nation's chosen leaders. In "Just As I Am", Billy Graham shares how he came from ordinary beginnings to have an extraordinary life of influence, all derived from his unshakable belief in Christ.
