For 50 years he's been conducting crusades for the world. But few know the preacher apart from the pulpit. Few have been there in the circle during pre-crusade prayer times, or sat beside him on flights around the globe, or visited with him in his North Carolina home. But for nearly 40 years, Sherwood Wirt has been there. He has ministered and traveled with Billy Graham and experienced the realities of international ministry alongside his dear friend -- a friend who also happens to be the world's most loved evangelist. In that time, Sherwood Wirt has come to know the real Billy. And now so can you. Sharing stories, highlights, and the historic moments of Graham's ministry efforts, as well as the times spent away from the public eye, Wirt gives you an intimate glimpse of Billy. His memoirs reveal Billy's heart and vision. And his loving tribute will reassure you that the evangelist you've listened to for decades is as he has always seemed -- a man devoted to God and to opening the door of His Kingdom to the world. Some of the choicest glimpses into the ministries of the biblical prophets and evangelists were recorded not by those individuals themselves, but by writers who accompanied them in their work. Dr. Sherwood Wirt has been a valued associate of my father for decades, and in this book he shares his own unique perspective on Daddy's life and ministry. I appreciate his friendship and efforts. - Franklin Graham

"Mr. Wirt bravely mentions in his introduction that a letter appeared in a British Christian newspaper suggesting that he'd ""better leave Bunyan alone;"" but Mr. Wirt went ahead anyway protesting that Bunyan was an inspiration rather than a model. In any case, Mr. Wirt swings with his place names: Poopout, Hill, Prone Valley, Struggletown, Carnopolis, Upper Striving, Doomsdale. These oases of invention should cheer the persistent through the eye-crossing adventures of Chris, who left a wrangling household for the Pilgrims' twentieth century quest, after catching a burning sensation between the shoulder blades while reading Revelation ("something about a judgment that was coming"). However dialogue like the following will tilt any but the most uncritical Fundamentalist into the Slough of Despond: ""I used to date that student before I met Christ.""--Kirkus Review
