Billy Graham: His Life and Influence (2010)

The only analytical biography of the life of the great American evangelist to date, Billy Graham: His Life and Influence examines Graham’s incredible impact not only on the development of Christianity in the United States and worldwide over the past half-century but also on international affairs and in bringing about the fall of Communism.

Acclaimed author and former TIME Magazine senior correspondent David Aikman brings his Christian faith and his understanding of world affairs and world history into this thoughtful analysis of Graham’s ministry, which flourished during a challenging period in the American experience, when the nation was coming to terms with its unexpected new strength in the world and grappling with the most serious racial and social upheavals since the Civil War. Aikman examines critical episodes of Graham’s life that help explain his profound impact, both on the public life of America and other nations and the private lives of their cultural and political leaders.
