Summary

Throughout Billy Graham’s evangelical ministry, his roles as an evangelist and as “America’s pastor” have been well documented. However, the story that remains untold is the story of his leadership - both publicly and in private - as a minister and as a CEO.

For more than 50 years, Graham was CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and oversaw its worldwide gatherings and diverse media divisions. In addition, he was at the forefront of the robust "evangelical movement" that rose from obscurity in the 1940s to become a prominent social and political force 50 years later. Time magazine named Graham one of the top 10 leaders of the 20th century.

Graham’s passionate leadership style has been an inspiration to many, and now, in Billy Graham: Leading with Love, it is condensed into five essential principles. Based on interviews with Graham’s colleagues, associates, and friends, this unique insight into Graham’s life and ministry offers behind-the-scenes glimpses of his courageous leadership style and core beliefs.

This book did a marvelous job of documenting the singular focus of Dr. Billy Graham. His focus on the will of God is a testimony to the reader and Lines out ways in which we too can experience success in this life as we live strong and finish well. The book was engaging and useful.

The story of one of the greatest leaders and servants of God in the history of the world. A level 5 leader all the way!

I wish I had read this book when it came out. I could change your life and those around you if you let it.

Bottom line is "lead with love."

Lovingly written...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because it gives a great example of what a great leader should be. I would recommend this book to all those who are in leadership roles.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Billy Graham, the book was about him and those who he has inspired and those who have inspired him. He is a great example of true humility and humanity, he is an inspiration to me and makes me want to be more like Jesus Christ, as he tried to be.

What does Wayne Shepherd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Sheperd does bring a "love" to the narration, he made it sound like he was a personal witness to all of the events read about. As if he were the proverbial "fly on the wall". It was an interesting listen. His voice was calm and soothing.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!!!

Any additional comments?

I will be listening to this book many times over. I love it and the narration was great, it matched the emotion of the book. Can't say enough. Thank you!
