'There was nobody like him' - Trump mourns Graham

America's Pastor at work over the years! Billy Graham Library

The Reverend Billy Graham passed away Wednesday at the age of 99.

Later, tapes released in 2002 caught the preacher telling Nixon that Jews "don't know how I really feel about what they're doing to this country".

One of Graham's breakthrough films was "The Restless Ones", made in the 1960s, about morally adrift teens in Southern California who found the strength to withstand temptation after attending a Billy Graham crusade.

Known around the world, the evangelist preached to millions of people into his mid-90s.

For his father's 90th birthday in 2008, Franklin Graham created a private, bound book of personal letters from people who wrote about how the evangelist drew them toward a new life in faith. Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon, who sought Graham the most, also offered him high positions in government, which the evangelist "quickly and politely refused".

William Franklin Graham was born on November 7, 1918, into a Presbyterian family and was known as Billy Frank while growing up on a farm near Charlotte, North Carolina.

Priscilla "Sas" Argentine, 64, of McMurray, Washington County, said Graham's 1968 crusade in Pittsburgh had a similar effect on her.


In 2002, Graham apologised after the release of secretly recorded tapes from 1972 in which he and Richard Nixon, who was President at the time, agreed liberal Jews dominated the U.S. news media.

"His exhortation to put God first in all we do still lives on in the hearts of this community", a spokesperson said.

About HarperCollins Christian Publishing: The world's leading Christian publisher, HarperCollins Christian Publishing Inc., comprising both Thomas Nelson and Zondervan publishing groups and Olive Tree Bible Software. Graham preached the gospel face-to-face to millions of people all over the world. Overall, his calls for equality and unity made him respected among religious and secular leaders alike, though in 2005 he said he "would like to have done more" for Civil Rights. Graham later moved to Florida and was ordained there in 1939.

In a 2011 interview with Christianity Today, Graham said he wished he had not become as involved in politics. Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash, were fixtures on many of Graham's crusades. Graham spoke at the ORU campus dedication in 1967, and the school said his words continue to be a focus for the university.

"He helped me set the standards for our ministry", Drace said. I go to prepare a place for you ...

William Martin, the author of A Prophet With Honour: The Billy Graham Story, said: 'He was probably the dominant religious leader of his era. Graham said he simply saw the trips as apolitical opportunities to win souls for Christ.
