Who is Billy Graham

William Graham Jr, born on the 7th November 1918, was widely known as Billy Graham, the Christian evangelist from the United States of America. As well as being a prominent television and media evangelist, he was also an ordained Southern Baptist Minister, recognised around the world by the late 1940s.

Graham was known for broadcasting his message to the world over six decades, holding large rallies that were broadcast on radio and television. He was an advisor to Presidents of the United States over almost 50 years, from Harry Truman through to Barack Obama, counting many of the mas close friends. It was this public show of approval that helped him become such a trusted and established figure.

This was combined with his belief in racial integration at his events, anti-war stance and encouragement to join both the Protestant and Roman Catholic denominations. It is clear why so many felt connected to his sermons and his message. It is estimated he reached more people than any other person in the history of Christianity, with an estimated 2.5 billion seeing a television broadcast in 1996.

Billy Graham died on the 21st February 2018 and his message continues to date, as shown by the demand and interest in his quotes that you can find below.
