“Hi, my name is _____. I work as a _____.” Meeting anyone new requires this exchange of information. Our society tells us that our identities are wrapped up in our jobs. Essentially, we are what we do. There are two dangers in this thinking: 1) At some point you’re going to fail at what you do—and then who are you? 2) At some point who you truly are (God’s child) is going to conflict with what you do—and then what do you do? Because the midwives knew who they really were, they feared the Boss more than the king. In any job, remember who you are.
The 72-minute video, which was broadcast nationally after Mr. Graham’s death on Feb. 21, tells the remarkable story of how God used a farmer’s son to share the hope of Christ with millions around the world.
“It’s an extraordinary journey, how God took a young boy off a farm in rural North Carolina in the South and then from there to the ends of the earth,” said Franklin Graham, the eldest son of Billy and Ruth Graham and the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
For more than 60 years, Billy Graham preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world to 215 million people who took part in one of more than 400 Crusades, simulcasts and evangelistic rallies in 185 countries and territories.
The film showcases Mr. Graham’s work during the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S., behind the Iron Curtain in Eastern Europe, and through many pivotal moments in world history. It also features interviews with prominent broadcasters and personalities, including Tom Brokaw, Larry King, Charles Gibson, Kathie Lee Gifford and Brit Hume.
The DVD contains hours of bonus footage and features, including Billy Graham’s funeral.
