Billy Graham's Values And Influence On American Political Life

The late Billy Graham’s influence went far beyond religious life. Worldview talks with writer and filmmaker, Frank Schaeffer, son of another evangelical giant, theologian, Francis Schaeffer. One of America’s most prominent liberal Christian thinkers, Schaeffer will give his insights from his long family history with Graham, and how Graham was not as aligned with today’s populist evangelical mainstream as you might think. He’ll also tell us about Graham’s instrumental role in tearing down the wall of separation between church and state. 

Schaeffer is author of numerous books including his latest, Letter to Lucy: A Manifesto of Creative Redemption—In the Age of Trump, Fascism and Lies.
