9781599957340: The Preacher and the Presidents: Billy Graham in the White House

No one man or woman has ever been in a position to see the presidents, and the presidency, so intimately, over so many years. They called him in for photo opportunities. They called for comfort. They asked about death and salvation; about sin and forgiveness.

At a time when the nation is increasingly split over the place of religion in public life, THE PREACHER AND THE PRESIDENTS reveals how the world's most powerful men and world's most famous evangelist, Billy Graham, knit faith and politics together.

About the Author:

Nancy Gibbs was named a senior editor of Time (R) in October 1991, chief political writer in 1996, and Editor-at-Large in 2002. After moving to the Nation section, Gibbs wrote more than 20 cover stories on the 1996 and 2000 presidential campaigns, and in 1998, helped lead Time's coverage of the impeachment drama. Michael Duffy, most recently Time's Washington Bureau chief, has been at the centre of the magazine's coverage of politics and presidents for ten years. Duffy spent six years covering both the Bush and Clinton White House for Time and in 1995 won the Gerald R. Ford Award for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency.

From AudioFile:

The authors offer a chronological look at the Reverend Billy Grahams relationship with every president from Truman through Bush II. L.J. Ganser never loses his enthusiasm in his reading of the historical facts and anecdotes. He offers a consistent, clear Southern lilt when speaking for Graham, who has remained apolitical through the years. Grahams focus on his faith carries through as listeners learn how he stayed true in the face of a president who tried to use him for political purposes and another who didnt get along well with him. (One president had even sent him contributions as a boy.) Listeners will feel at ease as Ganser conveys the trust of the leaders in the preacher and the dignity of the reverend himself.
