As evangelist Billy Graham, who had inspired characterizations as diverse as "America' preacher" and "God's machine gun," approaches the twilight of this long ministry, this documentary takes an appreciative look back at the many lives changed on the "common ground" of Graham's crusades for Christ. On a personal side, this biography includes insights from Graham's wife Ruth and his five children, most notably son and heir apparent Franklin, all of whom characterize Graham as a strict but loving father who always made time to listen. Produced by the FamilyNet channel, this profile is ultimately a low-key plea to the viewer to make a decision for Christ, but like Graham himself, the video is a class act. Recommended.
