Ruth Graham—third child and youngest daughter of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham—offers a rare, inside look at the twentieth century’s most influential evangelist. In this substantive portrait, Ruth reflects on several different subjects, including her father’s love for the world, his humility, grace, and loyalty. She concludes the book with a chapter on authenticity, written just after Dr. Graham’s final crusade, which was held in New York in June 2005. Includes many previously unpublished Graham family photos and excerpts from personal letters.
What is Billy Graham really like? In these pages, Ruth Graham---his third daughter---offers an inside look at one of the twentieth century’s greatest men. Using memories, personal insights, unpublished letters, and photographs, Ruth presents a rich, dimensional portrait of her father, while sharing the legacy he has passed on to her---lessons in love, humility, grace, loyalty, and authenticity.
