The Legacy of Billy Graham: Critical Reflections on America’s Greatest Evangelist
edited by Michael G. Long
Westminster John Knox Press, 2008
(229 pages, $19.95, paperback)

reviewed by Gerald J. Russello

He has preached to more than two billion people worldwide, and he has been a fixture on the national political scene since the early 1950s. He was one of the most important religious figures of the last century. As the editor of this new collection notes, “no Christian minister, after all, has been more influential in global politics, economics, and faith in the twentieth century” than Billy Graham.
