After sixty years in ministry, his influence is unprecedented, his impact unmistakable. But how do we begin to measure the enduring value of one man's life and work?

He has thoroughly researched the evangelistic ministry of Billy Graham in order to ascertain his place in history. Although Drummond never descends to the level of hagiography, I prophesy that a careful reading of his book will convince us that, by God's providential grace, no single person in the twentieth century has been more influential for Christ than Billy Graham." -From the Foreword by John R.W.
