‘A Gathering of Souls:
The Billy Graham Crusades’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
During his long and distinguished ministry, Billy Graham has preached the gospel to well over 200 million people worldwide. The massive evangelistic gatherings that took place in sports arenas, concert halls, and outdoor venues became known as the Billy Graham Crusades. With expert commentary from pastors, academics, Graham associates, and fellow evangelists such as Luis Palau, this documentary gives the history of the crusades.
This documentary was very enlightening. There was so much I didn’t know about Billy Graham. Here were some highlights:
- How long Billy Graham has been doing crusades and how many people’s lives he’s touched.
- Over 200,000 million reached all over the world. That is pretty impressive. How many lives do we touch on a regular basis? If every professed Christian just reached out to 1 individual each day, the whole world would be reached in just a short time.
- He reached millions more by TV and Radio.
What stood out to me most was that he prepared a lot for his sermons. He always wanted to know his audience ahead of time. He wanted to speak to the people’s needs, where they were at and was relevant in his sermons to the issues of the day.
If you want to learn more about the crusades, I would recommend watching this documentary.
