The Definitive Story of Billy Graham on DVD - Truly This Man is God's Ambassador

Last year I visited the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College. One of the high points was getting behind the pulpit Billy used in so many of his major campaigns. Even standing in that historic spot overwhelmed me with the weight of history and the significance of this very unique servant of the Lord.

Since 1947 83 million people have attended a venue where they heard Billy Graham preach. If you want to know why, purchase a copy of the new video, "Billy Graham: God's Ambassador." Hosted by veteran interviewer David Frost and containing bonus materials such as a crusade sermon from Portland (OR), a message from son Franklin Graham, and an interview with David Frost, this is the best 2 hours I have spent in a very long time. With old pictures, vintage film clips, interviews with various persons (including several Presidents), and Frost's intelligent narration, it skillfully tells the story of "Billy Graham's extraordinary life and ministry." Quite simply, if this doesn't inspire you, humble you, and make you cry, you have no heart.

Produced by 20th Century Fox, it retails for $19 but I picked one up at Costco for less than $13.
