"His autobiography....is a curious combination of laborious official testament....and occasionally gripping personal story. It's clearly a collaborative effort, but it maintains, miraculously, the same. solid, distant baritone that still mesmerizes football stadiums....The inner tension of this autobiography is that of the public man whose private life became so attenuated that it gnawed at his own spiritual integrity. You understand better by this story why some churches demand celibacy of their ministers. Graham is gruffly honest about this....Although the high political anecdotes keep one amused throughout this tome, and the story of Graham's life itself is so remarkable, this underlying regret propels the book with a sadness that is strangely haunting. It makes one wonder whether the Christian calling to God is ever fully compatible with the Christian calling to family, a tension that Graham, alone among our modern fundamentalists, seems humble enough to grasp.Graham, Billy is the author of 'Just As I Am The Autobiography of Billy Graham' with ISBN 9780060633875 and ISBN 0060633875.
