Billy Graham: Celebrating 99 years!

Today we celebrate evangelist, Billy Graham at 99 years of age! Graham has preached to more people in live audiences than likely anyone in history—a household name for decades.

Billy Graham was also heard for over 60 years on his radio program, “Hour of Decision” And of the Bible, Billy Graham has said: “Most books are born, live a few short years, then go the way of all earth; they’re forgotten. But not the Bible!”

You can see a Bible Billy Graham kept for his own personal use on display in the “Bible in America” exhibit, when Museum of the Bible opens later this month in Washington, D.C.
