Book Review: His Life and Influence


Billy Graham: His Life and Influence, by David Aikman is an intriguing biography of Graham's life.

From his personal life to his public image, the author depicts how Graham strived to be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ.  Throughout the book, Aikman refers to various resources, including Graham's autobiography, to provide a well-written, in-depth outline and description of Graham's life from his birth to the present.

One primary topic is Graham's influence in politics, including his spiritual guidance for several American presidents.  Since I'm not deeply interested in that field, several chapters seemed quite long and slightly challenging to read.  However, these particular chapters would be more ideal for those who are thoroughly invested in political aspects, particularly American politics.

Billy Graham: His Life and Influence is definitely a worth-while read, especially for those interested in the Christian movement, American and world politics, and, of course, Billy Graham.

Note: I received this book from Book Sneeze, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
