Digging Deeper into the Life of Billy Graham

by Greg Laurie on Jun 22, 2021

This Friday, June 25, on Harvest at Home, I’m sitting down with a friend for an in-depth conversation on the life and ministry of evangelist Billy Graham. I’ll be joined by author and editor Yves Le Sieur to discuss some of what inspires us about Billy today and the kind of legacy he left when he went to Heaven in 2018.

Billy often used to say, “If you see a turtle on a fencepost, you know he didn’t get there by himself.”

Billy Graham was the first to acknowledge that God placed him where he was in life. God gave him special gifts that were unique. He had an amazing ability to connect with people, and that ability launched him from obscurity to being a household name—and more importantly, transformed millions of lives for Christ.

While there will never be another Billy Graham, there’s a lot we can learn and apply as we pursue God’s calling in our own lives. So in our discussion, we’ll discuss my newest book, Billy Graham: The Man I Knew, and explore topics such as:

  • How to lead a church
  • How to find your calling
  • How to be a man in modern times
  • How to deal with doubt
  • What does it feel like to bring someone to faith?

Billy said to me many times, and in interviews as well, “I am just a country preacher.” We, he was just a country preacher. But God elevated him and used him because he had a willing heart.

You and I have so much to learn from Billy Graham, so I hope you’ll join us for this special interview this Friday on Harvest at Home.
