I’ve read the last page of the Bible. It’s all going to turn out all right.

The Reverend Billy Graham was born on this day in 1918.

Preacher, evangelist, counselor to Presidents, at 98 his health is failing, but he’d be the first to tell you he’s ready to go and that he knows where he’s going.

Hundreds of thousands came to a faith in Christ through his ministry through large indoor and outdoor rallies, often broadcast on radio and television. He held the Billy Graham Crusades from 1947 until 2005 when he retired.

Graham has appeared on Gallup’s list of most admired men and women 55 times since 1955, more than any other individual in the world.
