The Rev. Billy Graham, a magnetic preacher and counselor to Presidents who brought America’s brand of evangelism to audiences around the world, is dead at 99. Graham reached more than 200 million people through his appearances.
In TIME’s obituary, David Van Biema writes:
Later in life, Van Biema writes, Graham was modest about his achievements. “I don’t know why God has allowed me to have [all] this,” he told TIME in 1993. “I’ll have to ask him when I get to heaven.”
