Introduction or preface

Introduction

It always comes as a surprise to me when a gifted writer and interpreter of our faith wishes to tell something about me. The “days” in this book are similar to many others. If anything has been omitted, it is the larger scope of the activities of members of my team, members of local mission committees, and, most of all, of the sacrifice my own wife and children have made because of my ministry.

            I could wish that no one reading this record would fail to see the beautiful manifestation of the power and sovereignty of God in this ministry. As for me, I can claim no supernatural power of my own. There are many godly and talented men, but God has chosen me in his sovereign right to proclaim the message of salvation through faith in his son, Jesus Christ. Now this is a humbling truth. Therefore I find myself in the position of John and Charles Wesley, who took as a guiding passage from the Psalms, “Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy and for thy truth’s sake [Psalm 115:1].

—Billy Graham
