Billy Graham : Candid Conversations with a Public Man
Author: David Frost
An inside look at the heart of Billy Graham
For thirty years, Billy Graham and David Frost fascinated television audiences with their conversations about God, the Bible, and Graham’s decades-long ministry. Frost asked the questions that thousands of viewers wanted to ask. Graham answered them with authenticity and grace.
With engaging honesty, Graham tells stories of his earliest crusades, his involvement in the civil rights movement, and his role as spiritual mentor to several American presidents. He also speaks candidly about his failures and the part suffering and doubt have played in his spiritual life.
With a chronology of Graham’s life, a preface from Frost, and a foreword from Graham’s grandson Tullian Tchividjian, this weaving of stories, interviews, and reflections will inspire you as you listen to a man who has lived and loved well.
“Reading about my grandfather’s doubts and failures in black and white offers a refreshing view of his life and his relationship with Jesus, and demonstrates the unmerited grace of God for all of us.”
—Tullian Tchividjian, from the Foreword
