Luis Palau is a prominent and prolific Latin American evangelist whose ministry spanned nearly six decades. Born in Argentina in 1934, he was inspired to become an evangelist at the age of 12 after hearing Billy Graham preach on the radio.

After moving to the United States, he established the Luis Palau Evangelistic Association, eventually speaking to millions of people in dozens of nations worldwide.

Full of personal notes and sermon outlines, it helps document the use and impact of the Bible by one of the twentieth century’s most notable ministers.
