About This Book
Billy Graham... A crusade... A stadium poised for a spiritual change… A person in need…
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.
This new book of images and stories brings together never-before published stories of real people who responded to God’s invitation and as a result found their lives transformed and utterly turned around.
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.
