Review Text

The larger-than-life American evangelist has become a global institution, so it was only a matter of time before the gospel according to Billy put in an appearance. Everything you've ever wanted to know about the inner thoughts of this so-called 'President's chaplain' seems to have been included: from faith in God through to politics, pain and suffering, presidents, sin and temptation to (you guessed it) Billy Graham on Billy Graham. Lest you think this is too much of a stunt in naval-gazing, Frost - who first interviewed Graham more than 30 years ago - points out that he is the key to a wider picture. 'It gives a snapshot here and a snapshot there that together form a fascinating mosaic of evangelical Christianity as it attempted to hold its own in a century more known for secular religions like fascism and communism,' he writes. For a man who once vowed never to be an undertaker or a clergyman, Graham has come a long way: his secret appears to lie in his simple, boiled-down faith. In his own words, he is refreshingly straightforward: 'The message that the world needs and is hungering for is that God is. People today are hungry to know about God and it is wonderful when they hear that God loves them, He is a person and He is willing to forgive them.' (Kirkus UK)show more
