Synopsis: Told in flowing and succinct prose, this portrait of Ruth Bell Graham, the world-famous evangelist Billy Graham's wife gives the reader a first-hand glimpse into some of the great events of the second half of this century. It follows Ruth Bell Graham first as a missionary child from war-ravaged pre-Revolution China and Korea, to peaceful Wheaton, Illinois, and then as a famous evangelist's wife, to the Deep South, Post-War Europe, and the events in America since the 1950s.
Far from showing us "The Revival Widow," Patricia Cornwell depicts Ruth Bell as a woman of extraordinary strength, will, and faith, who has influenced the face of modern Christianity. Inseparable from her husband, we learn much about Billy Graham's beliefs, his background, the evangelist's private life, and witness his rapid climb to world prominence, and Ruth's invaluable contributions, support, and sacrifices to her family, and his.
Patricia Cornwell, with this impressive account, has written a magnificent biography of a great American lady.
Product Description: Patricia Cornwell has been a friend of the Grahams since childhood, and in this biography she details the life of Ruth. Ruth's childhood years were spent in the mysterious China of the 1920s and 1930s. The daughter of medical missionaries, she and her family were caught in a crucible of unspeakable hardship. Shaped by these experiences, they became inured to difficulties but buoyed up by their deep belief in God's abiding will. As the wife of the famous evangelist, Billy Graham, Ruth stood alongside him at presidential inaugurations and other important events, but always sat alone, hidden or in the crowd, at Billy's national and international rallies. It is Ruth who influenced Billy most as his trusted confidante and life companion; she has kept their home and family life intact; and she has brought spiritual guidance and comfort to people far away as well as on her doorstep.
