Hailed as "the world's preacher," Billy Graham enjoyed a career that spanned six decades and his ministry of faith touched the hearts and souls of millions.

In Just As I Am, a #1 New York Times Bestseller, Graham reveals his life story in what the Chicago Tribune calls "a disarmingly honest autobiography." With down-to-earth warmth and candor, Graham tells the stories of the events and encounters that helped shape his life. He recounts meetings with presidents, celebrities, and world leaders, including Harry S. Truman, Winston Churchill, Queen Elizabeth, and the Shah of Iran, and shares his own spiritual journey as he movingly reflects on his personal life and relationships. This is an inspirational and unforgettable portrait that will be treasured by readers everywhere.

As I look through it, it looks like it would be well worth reading, and it's particularly timely since this man-of-God is now with the Lord in heaven.

But the Large Print version is physically too large for our elderly reader to handle, so he won't have the opportunity to tell us about it. A real shame.

Books are so important to this reader. He consumes them and they become a great topic of conversation with those who visit and care for him. He needs the large print format. But a large print volume does not work for him when it is so heavy, bulky and unwieldy.

How about breaking these 1,000+ page large print beasts into two volumes so they can be handled by their target readers? Hope that becomes standard practice for the publishers and/or the libraries.

It takes a while to get through this biography, but then Mr. Graham has done a lot in his eventful life. The book goes through his life chronologically, and it reads as if Mr. Graham was telling stories about what happened during that time of his life. So often he will throw in a little remembrance that is only a couple of paragraphs long. It makes for a real personal feel to the book.[return]I enjoyed this book immensely. Some chapters were of less interest than others of course, my favorites were the ones in which he described his relationships with political leaders. I highly recommend this book, especially for those interested in famous people and/or religious leaders.
