This is the definitive tribute to the life and legacy of Ruth and Billy Graham. Endorsed by the family and with a foreword by daughter Gigi Graham, it contains many photos and personal stories that have not been published before. The book release will coincide with Billy's 95th birthday. Billy Graham has preached the Gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history - nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories. Hundreds of millions more have been reached through television, video, film, and webcasts. But behind this exceptional man, there was an equally exceptional woman. This new biography of Billy and Ruth Graham, endorsed by Billy himself and with a foreword by his daughter Gigi, focuses on the 10 core values that were foundational to the Graham ministry, and illuminates the quiet and impactful ministry of Ruth.
