A defecting spy, a verdict in the case of El Chapo and press freedom under attack around the world.
From humble beginnings in North Carolina, William Franklin Graham Junior became an ordained minister whose name is synonymous with American evangelical Christianity.
From the New York Times:
Mr. Graham spread his influence across the country and around the world through a combination of religious conviction, commanding stage presence and shrewd use of radio, television and advanced communication technologies.
Mr. Graham took the role of evangelist to a new level, lifting it from the sawdust floors of canvas tents in small-town America to the podiums of packed stadiums in the world’s major cities. He wrote some 30 books and was among the first to use new communication technologies for religious purposes.
Graham passed away Wednesday. He was 99. We remember his powerful and complicated legacy in religion and popular culture.
