This is an inspirational and unforgettable portrait that will be treasured by readers everywhere.

Read an Excerpt

During his shockingly short term, President Kennedy endeared himself to me in several ways. One day in Washington in 1962 the President invited Grady Wilson and me into his office. We informed him of our upcoming five-week crusade in Latin America. 'I'm going down there before that,' Kennedy said. 'I'll be your John the Baptist.'
'Don't forget,' Grady said, 'that he lost his head.' That did not dissuade the President, who laughed and repeated his offer. 'What can I do for you?' We told him we were having problems getting into Colombia, where some leaders warned of religious riots if we held large meetings. Our missionary friends there were praying that God would reopen the door.
The President turned to an adviser and told him simply, 'Take care of that.'
We got into Colombia, and attendance at our meetings was as high as twenty thousand, without incident. The Catholic President of the United States had made a good John the Baptist.

This shows the REAL Billy Graham! He is true to his word. A lot of interesting and sometimes funny episodes. He is a really down home man. He gives some interesting insights into the many U.S.presidents that he has befriended-from Eisenhower to George Bush. An intesting view of world leaders and history from his point of view through the years. You will be amazed at his view of world evangelization.

This book has been a comfort to our son while in prison. Rarely touching 'religious stuff' for the past 10-years, I asked him if I could send him some books to read. Just As I Am was one of the books. It is the first one he read and says he really has enjoyed it and thanked me for sending it to him.

Billy Graham really knows how to speak and capture your attention. He talks in a way you can understand. I have read many of his books and find them hard to put down. In this book he talks about his life (bits and pieces of growing up) and how he became the wonderful evangelist he is today! This is an Absolutely wonderful book and another one hard to put down!

When you mention the name Billy Graham you automatically thing one of the most influential preachers in America. Age has slowed him down, but his spirit shines bright. This book project took him 10 years and was a guilty venture, he felt he could better use his time than to write about himself. I did not know what to expect when I picked it up and I thought it was going to be a preachy advise filled tale of the pious life. I was pleasantly surprise of his candid story. He gave insight into his rise within the evangelical movement and his calling to serve the Lord. His work toward expanding his ministry. What I really enjoyed was his insightful thoughts about the Presidents he was able to befriend. From Truman, who he admits he made a fool of himself when he kneeled in front of the White House trying to recreate how he prayed with the Truman. In the course of getting to know the leader of the free world, he learned how to be discrete, serve as a sounding board, and share prayers. His relationships was close with Johnson was the most adventurous as this bigger than life political figure took him into his trust. His was bipartisan and befriended Nixon. His influence has weaved throughout the world. Graham delves into his family, his love of his wife Ruth, and how in the end he should have not been in such a hurry. He regrets not spending more time studying and thinking but this book is a gift for those who wish to understand loneliness and human failings of our leaders. Graham is the first to admit he is not perfect but he has lived a life dedicated to service to others and planting the seeds of faith.
