Summary
She was born in 1920 on the east coast of China, the daughter of an American missionary doctor in the midst of civil war. He was born the son of a dairy farmer in 1918 in Charlotte, North Carolina, where milking cows was a daily chore. Together they would live a life of influence neither could have imagined on their own. No one has preached the gospel to more people than evangelist Billy Graham. But behind this exceptional man is an equally exceptional woman who made his global ministry possible. Through her constant love, support, prayers, and personal ministry, Ruth helped shape Billy's tireless work for the kingdom of God. Now you can get to know this couple intimately in the first biography that focuses on both Billy and Ruth. This engaging book, endorsed by Billy Graham, tells many personal stories not yet known to the wider public includes more than one hundred photos, some never before published. Discover how their devotion to God and to each other allowed them to influence generations of believers and bring the life-giving message of forgiveness in Jesus's name to the masses. This is the intimate story of one couple who lived for God--and for each other. In everything, Ruth and Billy Graham worked as a team guided by a set of values. These values influenced every action, from how they raised their children and talked with their neighbors to how they approached public life, values like humility, integrity, grace, and authenticity. Full of anecdotes that reveal a winsome couple completely committed to one another and their mission, this biography uncovers the foundation of faith and love that made the life, ministry, and legacy of this influential couple possible. See the Grahams as you've never seen them before. -- Publisher description
