Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Martin's first book is an immense and appealing study of how Billy Graham became the "world's most influential Christian leader" and how Early America virtually became a Christian nation. The account starts 350 years ago with the Pilgrims spreading evangelical fervor, then progresses to portray Graham, now 72, as following the leads of evangelists like D. L. Moody and Billy Sunday. Martin, professor of sociology at Rice University, conducted some 100 interviews; he discovered no scandals but he found Graham to be a man of party politics as well as religious principles. We learn, for instance, that Graham successfully courted the favor of then North Carolina governor Strom Thurman and of Harry Truman years before his support of the Republican ticket in 1956, well before he became known as Nixon's pope.

From Library Journal

Martin (sociology, Rice Univ.) chronicles the 40-year career of Graham, the foremost modern evangelical prophet, and offers an overview of the foundations of evangelism and the conflicts with fundamentalists. Martin gives a sense of Graham as a man of theology, not of administrative work, with influence on the world and politics. Graham describes an evangelist as "a person with a special gift and a special calling from the Holy Spirit to announce the good news of the gospel." Sources used include interviews and texts. Graham has reviewed the work for accuracy. Recommended for most libraries. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/91.

I hacwe always loved Billy Graham and listened to his sermons often. I love this book, it describes the man of God I knew him to be and added some information I was glad to get.

When I ordered the item it was under the category of "new". When it arrived it was extremely obvious that it was a "used" book. THe packaging was more than sufficient, thick cardboard with bubble wrap around the entire book, but the cover had a piece missing, was wrinkled on the spine, and the pages were definitely not in new condition. Very disappointed and will not order from this company again!

My thoughts:
This is a biography of the life and ministry of Billy Graham. It has a few pictures throughout. I thought it was a good overview of the life of this man who has touched many lives for Christ. I learned some things about him as well about his life as a boy, his marriage and children, and his crusades. He formed relationships with people throughout his life and these helped in later in life. It was amazing to read about the many famous people he has been able to reach.

It is considered juvenile nonfiction.

This book was provided to me for my review from the publisher. Thank you.

3 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Cecil Bothwell VINE VOICE on November 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
While this book ranks as the most comprehensive take on Graham's life and career, it suffers from two shortcomings. William Martin is rather too uncritical of his subject, and, like most other Graham biographers, he depends too heavily on Graham's memory. Graham has repeatedly proven to be an unreliable source concerning his own history as I documented in my own research for The Prince of War: Billy Graham's Crusade for a Wholly Christian Empire. Unlike Marshall Frady whose Billy Graham - a Parable of American Righteousness reported out some of the preacher's less admirable endeavors, Martin participates in the general canonization of Graham.
