Who doesn’t know Billy Graham? I, of course, have heard of him but didn’t really know his impact until watching the Netflix series The Crown. In the series, there is one episode that features Billy Graham and his interaction with the young Queen Elizabeth. The Queen is the head of the Church of England and a spiritual leader in her own right. Their interaction was powerful, and Graham’s influence on the world stage..in his prime…truly showed me the depth and breadth of his work.
Billy Graham is an Evangelical. He understands the nuances of the Bible and shows the humility for a man at the peak of power to remain humble and defer to the Word of God for all answers.
