Author: Jake Hanson 

Everyone knows Billy Graham. . .but who knows what propelled him to world prominence as the greatest evangelist of his time? Find out in Igniting the Fire. This brand-new biography focuses on Graham’s formative years, from his boyhood through college, to his bursting onto the national scene in 1949. Author Jake Hanson, like Graham a graduate of Wheaton College, has drawn upon scores of original documents and new interviews to detail the environment, the movements, and the mentors that created Billy Graham’s passion to spread the Gospel. You’ll see how God, in His sovereign wisdom, brings unique influences to bear to accomplish His will.
 
Review:   
"Billy Graham rose from the humblest of beginnings to become during the second half of the twentieth century one of the world's most recognized and respected figures. His evangelistic messages reached a larger audience than any in history. How could it happen? Jake Hanson's Igniting the Fire offers an intimate look at the unlikely origins of this extraordinary man, and the still more extraordinary ministry God granted him."
--Dr. Duane Litfin, President Emeritus Wheaton College

"Reading biographies of persons who have maximized their lives for Christ always inspire me. Given that reality, Jake Hanson has done us all a favor by giving us glimpses not only into Dr. Graham's college years but into the early influences that empowered Dr. Graham's future ministry. This unique perspective on Billy's ministry should make us all aware of the potential of our impact on others and the debt we owe to those who have formatively empowered our journey. Igniting the Fire is particularly motivational to me as a college president. This book will stand tall among the many others that have sought to find the key as to why the Graham story is so amazing. I give it five stars!"
--Joseph M. Stowell, President, Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, Michigan
