Southern LiterBEARy Portraits
William (Billy) Graham

Protrait by students of Mr. Priscilla Dollar's class,
Deep River Elementary School

by Emily B.

Billy Graham was born on November 7th, 1918, and was raised on a dairy farm in Charlotte, North Carolina. His family called him Billy Frank. When he was fifteen, the summer of 1935, Billy accepted Christ through the ministry of Mordecai Ham, a traveling evangelist. In 1940, the Southern Baptist Convention awarded him a theology degree from Florida Bible Institute. Three years later he graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois. He married Ruth McCue Bell, the daughter of a missionary surgeon in China. Billy Graham and his wife built their home in Montreat, North Carolina, the mountain town in which they had been married a few years earlier.

Graham is known throughout the world as a powerful evangelist. He has preached from Africa to Nagaland. He has traveled all around the world and preached. Billy Graham also writes inspirational non-fiction. Graham has more world-wide readers and has sold more books than any other North Carolina writer. The following titles are the titles of some of the books he has written: My Answer, World Aflame, The Challenge, The Jesus Generation, Peace With God, Angels: God's Secret Agents, and many, many more! I haven't read any of the books that he has written, but I think they would be interesting. I know he has helped many people and touched many lives; maybe one of them was you!
