For audiences worldwide, no person has delivered the message of God with more power and dedication than Billy Graham. With an undying commitment, Billy Graham has used the Lord’s word to help millions accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Billy: The Early Years Of Billy Graham presents a rare glimpse into the life of the young Graham and how his mission and commitment to God shaped the man who changed the face of modern Evangelism and went on to become one of the world’s most influential preachers. Directed by veteran Actor / Director and Golden Globe® nominee Robby Benson (Beast in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Ode To Billy Joe, Ice Castles, The Greatest Story Ever Told).

From his humble beginnings we join Billy on a journey to spread the word of the lord. Billy: The Early Years includes such Hollywood luminaries as Academy Award®-winner Martin Landau (Ed Wood, “Entourage”), Lindsay Wagner (“The Bionic Woman”), Stefanie Butler (“CSI: NY”) and Grammy Award®-nominated country music sensation Josh Turner.
