Abstract:

Billy Graham has cooperated with John Pollock by opening his mind and heart to such an extent that future biographers can only build upon the story set down here. John Pollock tells he Graham story from its simple beginnings in a frame farmhouse near Charlotte, North Carolina. As a boy, Billy was busier with framing and pranks, baseball and random reading than he was formal studies. He grew tall fast; he 'borrowed' his father's car to race it over country roads; fell in and out of love; and thought the devotional books his mother read to her family 'all hogwash.' It is not only the life of Billy Graham that John Pollock tells here, but also the dramatic and skilled workings of his association on the 'Team.'; the methods, tested over and over again, that are followed to lay the groundwork for successful crusades and to help those who become converted to persist in their new Christian lives. Many people who have resisted the appeal of Billy Graham because of misunderstandings about his approach to the racial issue or because of misinformation about the perseverance of Graham converts, or who mistrust the crusades because of dubious financing of other, earlier evangelists, will -- upon reading this book -- see Billy Graham and his message clearly. For Billy Graham is revealed here as a man who not only practices what he preaches, but who time and again has gone beyond wisdom and beyond strength to do Gods' work. - Inside cover.
