(CNSNews.com) -- Pastor Billy Graham, probably the most influential Christian evangelist of the last 70 years, died this morning at age 99. He finally went where he always wanted to go -- to God.
Over the decades, Billy Graham's preaching in person, on radio, and on television reached an estimated 2.2 billion people. The Cincinnati Post reported in 2002 that Graham had "preached the gospel to more people around the globe than anyone in history."
Media worldwide are now publishing obituaries on Pastor Graham and the achievements of his life. There is much to say about Graham, but his impact was always evident in his preaching and the way he could grab onto an audience and shake them into moral sobriety.
Below is a broadcast of one of Billy Graham's crusades in 1971. His message speaks for itself. Rest in peace, Billy Graham.
