Netflix releases Billy Graham documentary

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) has announced the release of a new film about the life of the great evangelist.

Available via Netflix, the documentary follows the life of Dr Graham from a dairy farm in North Carolina to international recognition.

The launch coincides with the first anniversary of his death.

Preaching Good News

During his life Graham met kings, presidents, celebrities and many more ordinary men and women – over 200 million people across 185 countries.

He consistently preached the good news of Jesus Christ.

Graham courageously stood against racism, at one point tearing down ropes separating the ‘white’ and ‘black’ sections at a meeting in Tennessee.

He declared: “Christianity is not a white man’s religion”, “don’t let anybody ever tell you that it’s white or black. Christ belongs to all people”.


Lee Searle, UK Director of the BGEA, believes that Dr Graham would have approved of the film because of his passion “to see the Gospel shared by all means necessary”.

Colin Hart, Director of The Christian Institute, has said: “Many people I know have friends who came to Christ through the ministry of Billy Graham.

“He faithfully proclaimed the Gospel and also spoke out on issues that were against the consensus of the day”.
