This week Americans and Christians worldwide mourn the passing of and celebrate the great life and ministry of Billy Graham. His impact for the Kingdom of God is incalculable. More than 3.2 million people responded to the invitation at Billy Graham Crusades to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. As of 2008, Graham's estimated lifetime audience, including radio and television broadcasts, topped 2.2 billion. Because of his crusades, Graham preached the gospel to more people in person than anyone in the history of Christianity. The ripple effect still continues today.
