A Suggestion of a Gift for Father’s Day Or Win a Copy for Dad! BILLY GRAHAM & ME


I’m sure you’ve all heard of, or seen or read THE CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL books. This one centers around a man I highly respect, Reverend Billy Graham. This book titled, BILLY GRAHAM & ME, is a collection of 101 personal recollections of people who have known him well. Some people who wrote reminiscences are Former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, Wynonna Judd, President Barak Obama, Kevin Sorbo, and Ravi Zacharius and many more.

I’ve always had high regard for Billy Graham because he has never let his family down. No sordid affairs or tawdry scandals. And I always loved to hear him preach. To me, he was a man who spoke to each person as if it were only the two of them–even though thousands were present. This is a great gift book for anyone who has ever heard Billy Graham preach. I especially enjoyed the story of how Cliff Barrow became Billy’s song leader–definitely a God-thing.

I have one HARDBACK copy to send to one commenter. Or I will send it to your father or whomever you honor on Father’s Day.

  1. Billy Graham has been central focused on the lost. I have heard his daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, and have loved her ministry. She was the main speaker at a Woman’s Day Away twice, a gathering of churches once a year for workshops. I receive her newsletters. My husband would enjoy receiving this book!

  2. I grew up watching Billy Graham’s revival services. I like to remember my mother’s account of his crusade at Vanderbilt. She is now 95 1/2 and thinks of him as her best friend. I always respected him for having a man accompany him while traveling, so that no one would accuse him of wrong doing or less he be tempted. He truly knew that man is capable of great sin, even when a man is not looking for that sin. I would like to have a copy of that book, especially for my mother. Thanks.

    I have never heard him preach in person but on tv . I believed he is a real Christian.

    Years ago I had the opportunity to be part of a Billy Graham Crusade. I noted these things from being part of the crusade: he was compassionate, humble, caring, a loving father and husband and more than anything, he loved the Lord His God. I would love to win a copy for my father!

  5. Barbara Thompson says:

    I believe Billy Graham was a Christian man that was not ashamed to speak God’s word before it became the popular thing to do. I also believe he treated everyone equal. It didn’t matter to him who you were; you had a soul that God loved.
