Billy Graham conducted his first evangelistic crusade in 1947, his last in 2005 and in between preached the Gospel to more than 200 million people in 50-plus countries.
Making a one-hour documentary about Graham’s life may sound daunting, but a new film out on DVD and streaming platforms does just that. Titled Billy Graham: An Extraordinary Journey, the documentary traces Graham’s life, from his humble beginnings in North Carolina to his rise as the most famous preacher in modern history.
Graham died in February, just a few months short of what would have been his 100th birthday.
The documentary includes interviews with his family -- his mother, brother and children -- as well as with well-known people such as President George W. Bush, Tom Brokaw, Larry King, Charles Gibson, Diane Sawyer and Michael W Smith.
