Perhaps no individual person has had more of an effect on twentieth-century American Christianity than the renowned evangelist Billy Graham. And although Graham's influence on evangelicalism has long been recognized, Michael G. Long's The Legacy of Billy Graham is the first book to examine his impact on mainline Christianity and American civil religion.
