Overview

Although the popular literature concerned with Billy Graham as an evangelical icon is vast, there have been few serious academic considerations of his religious views. In America's Preacher and His Message, Timo Pokki provides the most extensive systematic analysis to date on Graham's theology, paying particular attention to views surrounding conversion and sanctification. The study not only provides a detailed analysis of Graham's thoughts on these topics, but also investigates the impact of Calvinism and Arminianism on revivalism and evangelicalism in general.

Editorial Reviews

Journal Of The Academy Of Evangelism
This volume provides the student with a helpful understanding of how theology flows from our view of ministry and vice-versa. It also highlights the tension between various popular traditions and the difficulty in following one position consistently. This is a good beginning for further investigation into the theology of American evangelists.
