Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, himself a noted evangelical with Southern Baptist roots, released a statement noting that Graham "shaped the spiritual lives of tens of millions of people worldwide."

"Broad-minded, forgiving, and humble in his treatment of others, he exemplified the life of Jesus Christ by constantly reaching out for opportunities to serve," stated Carter, as quoted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"He had an enormous influence on my own spiritual life, and I was pleased to count Reverend Graham among my advisors and friends."
