The story of Graham's life itself is so remarkable. --New York Times
Events in a single year in the life of Billy would make ample biographical material for a lesser mortal's entire life...This is no doubt the most authentic history of its subject we shall ever get. --Christianity Today
...What is most striking about the autobiography is not the oft-told tales of public events, but the glimpses into the private life of the man who has consistently over the last four decades made the list of America's ten most admired men --Chicago Tribune
From the Back Cover
Hailed as 'the world's preacher,' Billy Graham's career has spanned more than five decades and his ministry of faith has touched the hearts and souls of millions. In Just As I Am, Graham reveals his life story in what the Chicago Tribune calls 'a disarmingly honest biography.' With down-to-earth warmth and candor, Graham tells the stories of the events and encounters that helped shape his life. He recounts meetings with presidents, celebrities, and world leaders, including Harry S. Truman, Winston Churchill, Queen Elizabeth, and the Shah of Iran, and shares his own spiritual journey as he movingly reflects on his personal life and relationships. This is an inspirational and unforgettable portrait that will be treasured by readers everywhere. This new updated edition includes Graham's role in pastoring the nation after the Oklahoma bombing and 9/11 attacks (including an appendix with the text of both nationally broadcast sermons), his knighthood, his decision to designate his son, Franklin, as his successor, his refusal to 'retire,' and much more. It also contains a new afterword, written by Reverend Graham, that updates readers on what has happened in his life and at the BGEA in the ten years since Just As I Am was originally published.See all Product description

And he who wins souls is wise." -- Proverbs 11:30
My pastor recently suggested I read biographies and autobiographies of well-known evangelists to learn more about how each was helped to gain Salvation. Naturally, the autobiography of Billy Graham made that list. His high-profile crusades were a worldwide staple for many years. Somehow I was not surprised to read that Dr. Graham was born again while attending crusade-like campaign meetings conducted by Dr. Mordecai Fowler Ham when Dr. Graham was 16.
Reading the humble words about Dr. Graham's beginnings in life and in his faith, I was drawn powerfully into the autobiography and wanted to read more. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this book is more than an autobiography, it's also a humble history of someone who represented Jesus to the un-Godly around the world, influenced many world leaders, and who founded a major organization to help save sinners. The more I read, the more I wanted to read.
I was particularly impressed by Dr. Graham's desire to avoid even the appearance of wrong-doing, from quite a young age. It was as though he knew from the beginning that he had to follow God's Word closely if he was to be of the most service to Him.
The book is also fascinating for seeing how service to the Lord drew people to Dr. Graham. Those who want to be more popular can learn an important lesson here: Let Jesus introduce you to the people He wants you to know.
Today, there is much interest in ecumenical activities. Unfortunately, many of those activities don't have much, if anything, to do with evangelism. That's a shame. I hope people who are interested in evangelism will read this book and draw from its many lessons for how to be of service in witnessing for the Lord.
May God bless you, your family, and all you do in the name of Jesus!
