Tell others about Jesus like Billy Graham does:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, Foreign Missionary, Prominent Evangelist, or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________

Authors: Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy

At a time when the nation is increasingly split over the place of religion in public life, The Preacher and the Presidents reveals how the world's most powerful men and world's most famous evangelist, Billy Graham, knit faith and politics together.

"Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy, both veterans at TIME Magazine, have that peculiar gift among newsmagazine writers for being able to shape masses of complex and contradictory information into a compelling narrative. 

Even better, they have...packed their story full of details so delicious that even if you've read them before you're happy to read them again. 

They...show a lion in his winter, turning over the events of his extraordinary life sweetly, with pride, puzzlement and remorse."

They asked about death and salvation; about sin and forgiveness.  They asked how the world would end.  At a time when the nation is increasingly split over the place of religion in public life, The Preacher and the Presidents reveals how the world's most powerful men---from Harry Truman to George W. Bush---and the world's most famous evangelist, Billy Graham, knit faith and politics together for the last five decades.

In addition to multiple interviews with Billy Graham, award-winning Time magazine writers Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy have met with past presidents, their families, and top   aides from many administrations, _______________________________
