Video streaming services might offer us hundreds of entertaining shows and binge-worthy series, but when was the last time you watched a vintage evangelical broadcast featuring the one and only Billy Graham? Well, now you can. Amazon Prime video has just made available a whole host of movies produced by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
The 17 films include timeless movies and feature films from the late evangelist, including “The Hiding Place,” “The Restless Ones” and “Last Flight Out.” According to BGEA, it was after watching “The Restless Ones” that television personality and former “Today” show host, Kathie Lee Gifford, decided to give her life to Christ.
“The thing that I adored most about him is that he remained the most humble and giant of a man you would ever, ever, ever want to meet,” Gifford explained. “He had this incredible, loving presence of a person for the masses, but then when you were one-on-one with him, you were the only person in the room. Rarely do people have both of those gifts.”
