Evangelical Christians were more likely to name Billy Graham,
"It's not surprising when you consider he has been on the world stage,
faithfully proclaiming the Gospel across the country and around the world,
for more than six decades,”
Though the 93-year-old Graham ceased actively preaching about seven years ago,
he released his 30th book, Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well,
and his influence is still strong today.
Graham has managed to maintain his integrity – spiritual, moral and financial – over the years.
He has preached to millions and has served as an agent of reconciliation in matters relating to the church,
civil rights and other issues.
