In this recording, preserved from the 100th birthday celebration of Billy Graham after Billy went to Heaven, Pastor Greg Laurie addresses a gathered crowd of ministry leaders, pastors, and many others joining to celebrate Billy’s life. Greg Laurie expands on Billy Graham’s common refrain that he was “just a country preacher,” and shares familiar stories about his relationship with Billy.

More topics that Greg addresses are:
- The origins of the “Modesto Manifesto”
- Billy as a bridge-builder
- Who could replace Billy Graham?
