In a recent interview, Groeschel said he did not hesitate to add his story contribution when asked.
“When you talk about integrity, Billy Graham is one of the biggest heroes of my life,” Groeschel said. “I don't know anyone whose shown more boldness in sharing the gospel. Meeting him was tremendously humbling.”
Groeschel's story is joined by the stories of other well-known Christian religious leaders, including Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Miles McPherson and Roman Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan. Leaders from other faith groups, including Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein and South African activist Ela Gandhi, also shared stories.
Finally, Graham's own family and friends honored him for his authenticity, with stories from his daughters Anne and Ruth, his sister, Jean Ford, and his lifelong ministry partner Cliff Barrows.
Common themes throughout the stories are Graham's integrity and humility. He is revealed to be a man loving and accepting of all, with a genuine faith from which he draws peace, strength and hope that he is able to share.
