Adolf Hitler- (April 20, 1889-April 30, 1945)
--Famous and influential American Evangelical Christian minister and media personality, the Reverend Billy Graham played a significant part of the growth of evangelical Christianity in the United States and in the world in the mid- and late-Twentieth Century. His "Crusades," huge gatherings of believing Christians, drew thousands of the faithful to hear his message, as millions more audience members participated through the medium of the television. He is considered one of the best known Protestant Fundamentalist preachers in America, with a significant following, and the unofficial title of Minister to America's Presidents. He has served as a spiritual advisor to every U.S. President since Dwight Eisenhower.
He became a minister in the Southern Baptist Church in 1939, entered Wheaton College in Illinois and began preaching in Chicago in the early 1940s. While in Chicago, he began a radio program in order to reach more people with his message. Throughout his career, he deftly used the media to enlarge the range of his voice and his message. In 1949, he gained national attention with a preaching campaign he called a "crusade," in Los Angeles. The nationwide focus of his newfound publicity was aided by the desire of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, who increased his newspaper's coverage of Graham because of the strong anti-Communist fervor the young preacher showed in his sermons and his messages.
After a three-month long crusade in New York City in 1957, Billy Graham became one of the leaders of the national Protestant Fundamentalist movement. His ability to speak to the common man, hearkening back to his roots in the hills of North Carolina, enabled him to connect with millions of ordinary Americans in his long and influential career.
He is the author of over 24 best-selling books.
