In February 1959, renowned US evangelist Billy Graham arrived in Australia, and for the next four months preached in packed showgrounds and stadiums across the nation. In unprecedented numbers, ordinary Australians made decisions for Christ, creating a wave of spiritual transformation that's still tangible today. This documentary commemorates the 50th anniversary of Graham's momentous "Southern Cross Crusade", and features archival footage plus compelling interviews with some of those whose lives were changed forever.
Hailed as the world's preacher, the late Billy Graham had a career spanning over half a century. He preached the Gospel to more people in a live-audience format than anyone else in history - more than 210 million people, in more than 185 countries and territories through various meetings, including Mission World and Global Mission.
Born William Franklin Graham, Jr. in Charlotte, North Carolina, 17 November 1918, he entered the ministry in 1943 and soon began conducting evangelistic crusades. In 1950, he founded The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which has sponsored crusades and produced radio and television programs as well as films.
Dr. Graham wrote many books, a number of which became bestsellers. His autobiography, Just As I Am, published in 1997, achieved a "triple crown", appearing simultaneously on the three top best-seller lists in one week.
Dr. Graham passed away 21 February 2018.
