Billy Graham: A Model of Christian Rectitude - Audio

Billy Graham symbolized what Middle Americans want to believe about themselves and their allegiance to fundamental verities. Though he was not flawless, he lived by a strong moral code. He believed that what you do in private does matter, so to avoid sexual temptation he was never alone with a woman other than his wife. He set himself on a salary equivalent to a successful pastor of a large urban church, and funneled all of the money received from his ministry through the ministry, which he incorporated to make the finances public.  He did not claim converts – he felt that was God’s business – but did mention the numbers of people who came forward to inquire.  He was deeply focused on not doing anything to bring shame to Christ. Grant Wacker, professor of Christian history at Duke Divinity School, identifies the values by which Billy Graham lived and ministered in an audio recording on the website of Faith & Leadership, an offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity.
