Based on events that took place over several days, spanning a period of years, this book offers a unique up-close-and-personal view of Billy Graham's life. It allows you to accompany the evangelist on two crusades; travel with him to Israel; and visit with him in his home, where he conducts business, but also finds time to relax with his wife, Ruth Bell Graham. This work demonstrates Graham's unyielding belief that the power of God can transform people's lives.

Author Notes

Deborah Hart Strober and Gerald S. Strober are both professional writers. In the late 1970s, Deborah wrote the "Notes on Music" column for New York Jewish Week. But with a keen interest in politics and international affairs, she soon won general reporting assignments in New York, Lebanon, and Israel. Gerald Strober's friendship with Billy Graham began in the late 1960s, when he served on the national staff of the American Jewish Committee as coordinator of the organization's relations with the evangelical community



Introduction It always comes as a surprise to me when a gifted writer and interpreter of our faith wishes to tell something about me. The "days" in this book are similar to many others. If anything has been omitted, it is the larger scope of the activities of members of my team, members of local mission committees, and, most of all, of the sacrifice my own wife and children have made because of my ministry. I could wish that no one reading this record would fail to see the beautiful manifestation of the power and sovereignty of God in this ministry. As for me, I can claim no supernatural power of my own. There are many godly and talented men, but God has chosen me in his sovereign right to proclaim the message of salvation through faith in his son, Jesus Christ. Now this is a humbling truth. Therefore I find myself in the position of John and Charles Wesley, who took as a guiding passage from the Psalms, "Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy and for thy truth's sake [Psalm 115:1]. --Billy Graham Excerpted from A Day in the Life of Billy Graham: Living the Message by Deborah Hart Strober, Gerald S.
