Billy Graham: An ordinary man and his extraordinary God

Reviewed by: Ceil Carey, retired public librarian and long time book discussion leader



Title:  Billy Graham: An ordinary man and his extraordinary God

Author: Lon Allison

Publisher: Paraclete Press

Publication Date: 2018

Format: Hard cover

Length: 157 pages


While not the most exciting biography this reviewer has ever read, Billy Graham is well researched and documented and filled with information about Graham’s life. Known personally by the author, Lon Allison, the reader will receive a very clear picture of Billy Graham, his personal life and most particularly his public ministry.

One odd thing about Billy Graham is that several times the author puts in a personal note about himself which does not seem to resonate with the rest of the story. If you are looking for a short, easy to read and factual book about the famous evangelist, you will find it in Billy Graham: An ordinary man and his extraordinary God.
