Eerdmans to publish narrative biography of Billy Graham
In a world rights deal, executive editor at Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. David Bratt has acquired One Soul at a Time: A Short Life of Billy Graham by Grant Wacker. One Soul at a Time offers a concise, reader-friendly narrative history of the life and ministry of Billy Graham—written by an authoritative voice in the field of American church history whose previous works include America’s Pastor (Belknap Press, 2014), a thematic biography of Graham that established Wacker as an expert on one of the most beloved figures of 20th-century Christianity. Beginning with Graham’s early days on the family farm and moving through his life as an itinerant preacher, crusade leader, and presidential advisor, Wacker’s shorter biography will tell the story of the man whose plainspoken teaching has shaped the faith of millions.
