The Preacher and The Presidents

Veteran Time staffers Gibbs and Duffy's sympathetic history of evangelist Billy Graham's relations with every U.S. president since Truman testifies that, although sorely tempted by intense interest in politics and political leadership, Graham crossed the line of that separation only in his friendship with Richard Nixon, much to his later regret. Whether called to spiritual counsel or not, Graham always prayed for every president. The author does a commendable job of conveying Graham's devotion.
