Billy Graham: Just Get Up Out Of Your Seat (Trailblazers)
We’re sorry but you missed this offer. It is no longer free or a deal.
Billy was born on a dairy farm in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1918 just days after the signing of the armistice that ended the first world war. At the age of sixteen, Billy Graham came to Christ during a Christian revival meeting and it wasn’t long before he felt the call to preach.
With the help of his wife Ruth and many other friends and colleagues, Billy Graham set out to preach to the world. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was founded and since that day Billy has preached to over 80 million people in more than 185 countries. Millions more have been reached through television, video, film, and webcasts. He has founded newspapers; film companies, magazines and radio ministries.
Communism and Apartheid, Segregation and Terrorism – Billy Graham has faced up to all Christianity’s major opponents of the twentieth century. From playing the bail money to get Martin Luther King out of jail to addressing the memorial service in Washington after the collapse of the World Trade Center, Billy Graham has been there for people with practical help and a message of hope that is timeless.
Billy Graham: “Yes Sir, take me to the cross, I can find my way from home from there”
“Catherine balances knowledge of the subject well with personal anecdotes that make the characters come to life. It also makes you want to praise God for them. If you were teaching about famous Christians or wanted to challenge young people about what God could do with their life these would be ideal. Questions at the back of each chapter are helpful for class or group study. The ‘how to become Christian’ section at the back is a vital inclusion.”
“Billy Graham is the most effective world evangelist we have had since the New Testament Apostles. Thank you, Catherine, for the careful research and animated writing put into this inspiring story of our time”

“As I grow older, my confidence in the inspiration and authority of the Bible has grown even stronger. So has my conviction that only Christ can give us lasting hope…As the Bible says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.
