The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has released a film about the life of Dr Billy Graham, which is currently available on Amazon Prime in the UK.
World-famous preacher Dr Billy Graham (1918-2018) was best known for preaching the gospel at stadium crusades. The movie ‘Extraordinary Journey’ follows his life from a farm boy to preaching to millions.
The 72-minute video includes rare footage and interviews with presidents, celebrities, family and close friends. It also covers a variety of historical events that occurred during Graham’s 99 years, including the Civil Rights Movement and 9/11.
Lee Searle, UK Director of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), says Graham would have approved. “He had a passion to see the gospel shared by all means necessary. For example, he pioneered the use of radio and ‘streamed’ his UK festivals down phone lines. Plus, he was a regular on TV.
“It makes sense that we embrace streaming services to share the good news.”
The film aims to reach people who aren’t as aware of Billy Graham as their grandparents were, adds Searle.
“There is a place for the traditional methods, but we’ve seen a huge shift in the way people engage with the BGEA in the UK. Releasing this film is going to bless a lot of people.”
