Billy Graham and Me
101 Inspiring Personal Stories from Presidents, Pastors, Performers, and Other People Who Know Him Well

Steve Posner, Amy Newmark
(Chicken Soup for the Soul)
ISBN: 978-1611599053
February 2013/416 pages/Hardcover/$24.95

Renowned Evangelical preacher Billy Graham has touched tens of millions of lives, inspiring faith and hope around the world. And you will get to know the beloved preacher better in these inspiring, personal stories by the people who know him best. This book contains 101 fascinating stories from all the living U.S. presidents, well-known pastors, country singers and other celebrities, and world leaders, relating their own experiences with Billy Graham. You will meet the real Billy Graham, the man behind the public figure.


Steve Posner teaches Advanced Writing for International Relations and Global Economics at the University of Southern California. Amy Newmark is the publisher and editor-in-chief of Chicken Soup for the Soul.


Often referred to as "America's Pastor," Billy Graham is one-of-a-kind. Even those who differ with his theology respect him for his integrity and his life above reproach. I was fascinated by the stories shared in this book. Some are intensely personal, and it is obvious that the writer had a close relationship with Mr. Graham. Others are more generalized. All are steeped in admiration and respect for this man. And the common theme throughout all of them-besides declaring that the single-minded purpose of Mr. Graham's life, both public and private, has been to declare the gospel of Christ-has been Mr. Graham's complete humility and astonishment that anyone would see him as set apart. I particularly loved the stories shared by his children. Although the book is about Billy Graham, it's really about how God, and how He is glorified by a life wholly committed to Him. I highly recommend this book!

I would love to win this book. I "went forward" at a Billy Graham Crusade when I was 11 years old. With the passing recently of George Beverly Shea, Rev. Graham has been in my thoughts a lot.

Thank you for this!
