About-

'Examining Billy Graham's Theology of Evangelism' was written to advance an unbiased understanding of Billy Graham's theology and practice. Theological examination of Graham's sermons revealed four distinct eras in his theology and practice:

-The Early-Early Graham (pre-1949)
-The Early Graham (1949-1955)
-The Middle Graham (1955-1965)
-The Later Graham (1965-present)

In each of these eras Graham portrayed a discernible and distinct approach to defining evangelism, theological nomenclature, and cooperative strategy. No literature on Billy Graham discusses, in combination, this evolution in Graham's theology and practice.

You are invited to take a fresh look at the teaching and practice of this man who has touched millions of lives through the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"I am delighted to commend Tom Johnston's book 'Examining Billy Graham's Theology of Evangelism' on my longtime friend and colleague.... I thoroughly enjoyed Tom's intense cross-examination of my knowledge of God's servant who has been used so mightily and globally in our generation....

"Dr. Tom Johnston has traced Billy Graham's work around the world, studying his methodology and, especially, his theology. He has given us an understanding of the evangelist's mind, message, and motivation. The book, therefore, will become a helpful guide to those whom God will call as evangelists in years to come."

Stephen F. Olford, Founder and Senior Lecturer of the Stephen Olford Center for Biblical Preaching
