A behind-the-scenes analysis of 21 essential leadership principles from the life of Billy Graham. Billy Graham looms large as one of the twentieth century's most influential and innovative leaders. Most people are unaware of his remarkable effectiveness as not only preacher and pastor, but as a CEO and a global leader as well. The Leadership Secrets of Billy Graham is full of transferable applications for leaders in the church, parachurch, academia, government, and business. Lively interviews with his closest associates illustrate 21 principles that have driven six decades of visionary impact. First-hand accounts reveal stories of courageous leadership and growth through painful lessons. Graham's relentless application of core beliefs and leadership principles have resulted in, among many honors, being listed in Gallup's ten 'most admired men' thirty times, more than anyone else. Time magazine named him one of the top ten leaders of the twentieth century. This book asks: How did this happen? What are the essentials he embraced to achieve such extraordinary results? What can we learn from him and apply to our own leadership roles? This book is dedicated to those readers: who sense the pressing need in today's world for inspired leadership; who rise to leadership's high calling and are willing to carry its weight; who are determined to deepen and expand their capacities and effectiveness.

I very much enjoyed this book. It provided many tangible details to the history of what happened with him and the ministry. It also opened my understanding of how to go from leading a small outfit to a larger outfit, while doing so on a global basis. Read full review

Unsurprisingly, the reader walks away from this book with an even greater respect for the humble and powerful servant of God that Billy Graham was. Unfortunately, I felt the book was neither fish nor ... Read full review
