The modern World has never known a more revered or influential spiritual leader than Billy Graham. Volumes have been written and spoken about this humble man of God over the past half century, but until now, his extraordinary life and ministry have never been captured for the camera. Gaither Film Productions spent more than five years exhaustively researching the Billy Graham Archives at Wheaton College, Dr. Graham’s alma mater and the repository of his life’s papers in preparation of telling his life story. Award-winning producer/director Michael Merriman crisscrossed the country numerous times, attending Crusades, interviewing presidents and former presidents, family members and close associates.
The result is Billy Graham: God’s Ambassador, possibly one of the most important documentaries ever filmed. It is a moving, in-depth tribute to Dr.Graham, whose remarkable story is told by those who knew him as only valued associates of 60 years can. Punctuated by rarely-seen photos and film clips, Dr. Graham’s journey unfolds through a brother’s remembrances of their early life on a North Carolina dairy farm to a young Billy Graham’s acceptance of Christ’s calling for his life and his ascension to Pastor to the World. Because Billy Graham has spent six decades taking God’s message of love, hope and forgiveness to people around the globe, he became a great harbinger of social change, especially in the area of civil rights in his own country and other nations. One of his greatest contributions was to the fall of Communism. The only Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) authorized video biography of Billy Graham ever made.
