Over the two succeeding years, at homeand abroad, my repeated contacts with him and my opportunityto observe, firsthand, his Crusades and their consequenceswere almost wholly due to similar Reader's Digest assignmentsand resulted in five articles which have appeared in that maga-zine.There are many to whom, for help in assembling the ma-terial for Billy Graham, I am indebted: to Ruth and BillyGraham for their wholehearted approval of and cooperationin this undertaking; to Mel Larson for his painstaking research;to members of the Billy Graham Team; to my associates, Doro-thy B. Gardner and Mary Allen Thompson.But my first and, by all odds, greatest indebtedness is toThe Reader's Digest and to DeWitt Wallace, its editor.Stanley HighContentsIntroduction: The Great Succession 11.
