Graham in New York City

His body racked by age and infirmities, Billy Graham will depend heavily on the Holy Spirit to endure his speaking schedule for the New York City crusade later this month. The 86-year-old evangelist is determined not to let even hearing loss, prostate cancer, and Parkinson's disease stop him from delivering the gospel message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Christianity Today runs a nice piece reviewing Graham's relationship with civil rights, fundamentalism and Reinhold Niebuhr.

CT also mentions this rare NY Times interview of Graham.

Also see this tribute by Bono on Billy Graham.

Stephen, your readers might be interested in following Jeremy Del Rio, who is really involved in the behind-the-scenes work for the NYC crusade.

you need to warn us that Pat Boone will be singing after Bono is finished speaking.
