The Life and Legacy of Billy Graham – a special presentation from Fox News
Dr Billy Graham lived to be 99. In the twentieth century he was the greatest evangelist alive. He traveled throughout America and was overseas in so many countries, always winning souls to Christ. I met him only once, but that was unforgettable. We were at the University of California at Berkeley. He was speaking to the University professors at a special breakfast. I was a news director and had been sent there to interview him. He first spoke to the professors. He was profound – not the simple message he preached to millions, but one that was special for them. He began by saying “I want to apologize for the church. Most of you have never heard the straight gospel message and I’d like to share that with you this morning.” Not one of them could leave that day without saying they had a real chance in life to receive Christ as their Savior.

After his message I did the interview. I told him “You must be tired.”  He said he was and that he had flown all night to reach the campus. He didn’t sound tired in his message to the professors or with his answers to me. But he said he was never able to sleep in an airplane because someone would inevitably ask him “Aren’t you Billy Graham?” He always admitted that he was because he told me, “I’m a Christian. I’m not going to lie.” He gave me a great interview. But if I was to tell you the two things that so stood out they all but overwhelmed me.  It was his eyes.  When he looked at me I knew I had his full attention. It was if he could look into my soul. -Ray
