In this carefully documented, eminently fair, and gracefully written account, William Martin raises and answers key questions about Graham's character, contributions, and influence on the world religious scene. Tracing Graham's life and ministry from his rural and religious roots in North Carolina to his place as the elder statesman of American evangelicalism, tracing both his triumphs and his tribulations, Martin shows the multidimensional character of the man who has become one of the most admired persons in the world. This engaging and comprehensive book offers a detailed understanding of the most successful evangelist in modern history, and the movement he led for over 50 years.
