From the Back Cover
Hailed as "the world's preacher," Billy Graham has enjoyed a career that has spanned six decades and his ministry of faith has touched the hearts and souls of millions.
In Just As I Am Graham reveals his life story in what the Chicago Tribune calls "a disarmingly honest autobiography." Now, in this revised and updated edition, we hear from this "lion in winter" (Time) on his role over the past ten years as America's pastor during our national crisis of the Oklahoma bombing and 9/11; his knighthood; his passing of the torch to his son, Franklin, to head the organization that bears his name; and his commitment to do the Lord's work in the years of his and his wife Ruth's physical decline.

The strengths of his book begin with its simple-yet-profound presentation. He is eloquent without being garrulous - simple enough for a young person to read and understand, but hardly superficial. The chapters and sections are well divided. For the Christian reader, the overall message of God's goodness to Billy (and, in his own estimation, often in spite of Billy) will be a source of comfort and encouragement.
The weaknesses of the work are few but important. While the weakness of any autobiography will be its unbalanced presentation, Billy Graham's work is unique. Graham's personal records are fiercely guarded by his son (Franklin) and the BGEA. Thus, the account of Graham's life, personal as it may be, often left me questioning the total accuracy of the story (not so much an accusation of deceit - more of a "sound of one hand clapping" situation). Such questions are well supplemented by additional resources, such as Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy, "The Preacher and the Presidents" or Grant Wacker, "America's Pastor" (the latter being the best resource on Graham available, in my opinion). The non-Christian reader may find the overt Christian message of the book obnoxious, but what did you expect?
Overall, a very recommended book for researchers, students, or curious readers.
