About Invitation/Led to Believe
In this remarkable two-book set, Billy Graham's crusades are brought to life by those touched by his ministry.
Invitation: Billy Graham and the Lives God Touched
Now for the first time, through pictures and stories of ordinary people who heard the invitation and responded, we glimpse the breathtaking panorama of a seventy-year work of God on a scale no one could have imagined. Here is the inspiring spiritual journey of hearts and souls encountering God through the ministry of Billy Graham. From despair to hope, from broken life to renewed spirit, Invitation tells each individual story within the visual context of the Crusade experience.
Created by Billy Graham's grandsons, Basyle ("Boz") and Aram Tchividjian, Invitation draws from www.thankyoubilly.com, a website designed to capture for all time the human impact of Graham's crusades. Here, the stories poured in, from young and old, near and far—those who once were lonely, addicted, abandoned, sick, suicidal—all sharing how one invitation changed everything.
Designed around photographs, many never before seen, from the private Graham family collections and the archives of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Invitation has a place in every home, and is itself an invitation to all of us to experience the spiritual legacy of Billy Graham and the work of God in changing lives.
Led to Believe
Led to Believe brings together the life and words of the preacher with the lives of those he touched, in chapters that present their voices side by side. As Billy Graham tells in his own words about his personal faith journey, his 'faith in action' call to others comes alive in the true experiences of those who were changed by him.
Billy Graham has touched the hearts and souls of millions with his message of faith through over fifty years of his Crusades, radio broadcasts and best-selling books. His call appeals to each person in a unique way - and reaches one soul at a time. The personal recollections in this volume show changed hearts, renewed purpose, and, as Rev. Graham says, 'what God can do with a person'. Here, among the many stories, a big league pitcher learns to look to God for strength; a young man finds the courage to turn his back on crime; and a teenager experiences complete physical healing.
Reflections from those in Billy Graham's closest circle give an intimate look at 'the world's preacher'. And as a final tribute, Billy Graham's daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, recalls a moment in her teenage life when her father's love and concern taught her a moving lesson about her Heavenly Father. This special book is truly a unique and personal portrait of the man and his impact on the world.
