Billy Graham is being featured in Christian History Magazine this month for his lifetime of work for Jesus Christ.
In honor of the iconic televangelist's 96th birthday on Nov. 7, Christian History Magazine interrupted its quarterly releases with a special edition focused on Graham titled "Billy Graham–Apostle of changed lives and second chances."
"No man has had more personal, one-on-one, impact for faith in Jesus Christ than Mr. Graham," said Michael Austin, a Christian commenter and spokesperson for Christian History Magazine. "He and his family are a living testimony to the faithfulness of the Biblical message he so clearly derived from the start of his ministry to this day. Billy Graham's impact for good in this world is incalculable."
Christian History Magazine provided an informative and entertaining history on the life and family of Graham, who has personally shared the salvation message of Jesus Christ with millions of people around the world through the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The feature consists of 10 articles that include rare archive photos and intimate writing style, highlighting Graham's life and the core of his preaching message focused on belief in Jesus and the believer's life, lived in faith in holiness.
Furthermore, the 111th issue of Christian History Magazine identified and examined many of Graham's best-known milestones and associations that have largely made way for the Graham legacy. This includes the 1949 tent revival in Los Angeles, his use of television and radio, and his involvement in the American civil rights movement, among many others.
Guest editor for Christian History Magazine David Neff gathered several leading historians and writers on the special edition on Graham. The issue is available in the magazine as well as its companion website, christianhistoryinstitute.org, on order to offer a no-cost resource to the home, church library, and schools.
Meanwhile, Graham is currently in poor health but, as his son Franklin assured fans earlier this month, "he remains interested in current events and the ongoing work of the ministry that he began more then 60 years ago."
