Billy Graham’s legendary first New York Crusade in 1957 was a touchstone that affected an entire generation. Nearly fifty years later, the Reverend Graham returned to New York for what was expected to be his final United States Crusade, preaching the power of God’s love to tens of thousands of people from all around the world over three life-changing evenings.
This must-read book contains all three sermons from Billy Graham’s historic 2005 New York Crusade. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs from the event, The Last Crusade also features an original introduction and afterword written by Billy Graham, and a foreword by his daughter, Anne Graham Lotz. It is a message of the transforming power of Christ’s love—a message that is needed now more than ever.
The Reverend Billy Graham has preached the Gospel to more people in a live-audience format than anyone else in history—more than 210 million people, in more than 185 countries and territories—through various meetings, including Mission World and Global Mission. Hundreds of millions more have been reached through television, video, film, and webcasts. Graham founded the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) in 1950 in Minneapolis, where it was headquartered until its relocation to Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2003.
Billy Graham’s 2005 New York Crusade took place June 24, 25, and 26, at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens.
