Evangelist Will Graham is from a very famous family line of preachers. His grandfather, the late Rev. Billy Graham, and his dad, Franklin Graham, have both made an enormous impact across the globe. Will Graham is following in their footsteps as he preaches, learns and carries on the family legacy of sharing the Christian gospel.
Graham, who wrote the new book, “Redeemed: Devotions for the Longing Soul” and who last year starred as his grandfather in the film, “Unbroken: Path to Redemption,” recently shared with “The Pure Flix Podcast” what he believes is the most convincing proof that the biblical narrative is true.
“We used that [word] redeemed because we’ve been bought back. We’ve been bought with a price and that price was the blood of Christ on the cross,” Graham said. “And the proof of it is the resurrection. Christ [did] not just stay in the grace; he came out of the grace to show. ‘All the things I’ve said are true.’”

Graham said he shared his new devotional, “Redeemed,” after a desire to put such an inspirational project together.
“I love to tell stories. I love to tell what I’ve seen God do,” he said. “I’ve had a chance to travel the world, travel the country preaching the gospel. I’ve seen God do some amazing things in people’s’ lives.”
Graham said that he believes God should be at the core of any good and powerful narrative.
“I believe that God should be the hero of every story,” he said. “I’ve often said if God’s not the hero of your story then it’s not a story worth telling.”
The evangelist also went on to share his road into ministry, saying that there were many “bread crumbs” in his journey along the way that showed him he would one day follow in his dad’s and grandfather’s footsteps and enter
“The Lord was preparing me the whole time and I just didn’t know it,” Graham said, noting that he knew early on that he “wanted to fly around and tell people about Jesus.”
That dream was recognized and now Graham is making a big impact on lives around the globe as an author, pastor and the vice-president of The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
