Overview

No one has preached the gospel to more people than evangelist Billy Graham. But behind this exceptional man is an equally exceptional woman who made his global ministry possible. Through her love, support, prayers, and personal ministry, Ruth helped shape the ten core values that have been foundational to the Grahams' ministry:
· partnership
· authenticity
· humility
· intimacy
· focus
· integrity
· faith
· global responsibility
· empowerment
· grace

In light of these core values, personal friend of the Grahams and director for Campus Crusade for Christ International in Switzerland Hanspeter Nüesch describes both the life and ministry of Billy and Ruth. This deeply personal book illuminates the legacy the Grahams leave to couples doing ministry today and into the future, sharing stories and anecdotes from their life and times. Includes a foreword from Gigi Graham and more than one hundred photographs that capture the life of one of the most influential figures of the last century.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book with lots of insights into the lives of this couple, and the integrity and closeness to God and one another that exemplies why they stood the test of time. And every ministry team should have a “Modesto Manifesto”! Read it and see why.
