Billy Graham was the world's best-known evangelist—loved and admired by millions. But very few knew him personally. Pastor/author/evangelist Greg Laurie was one of those fortunate few, blessed with an insider's view of Billy Graham's world for more than two decades. Greg's new book is Billy Graham: The Man I Knew. He sheds light on Billy's lesser-known struggles—things like a broken heart before he met the love of his life and a crisis of faith from which he emerged stronger than ever. Greg Laurie joined us for a fascinating and faith-building conversation.
