About this title

Synopsis:

Franklin recalls childhood memories that are both happy and tainted. There are the warm memories of hunting and exploring with his father in the mountains around their home. But there are also the memories of the death threats targeting his father and the endless tourists who would peek in the windows of his family's house to get a glimpse of life in the Billy Graham household.
By the time Franklin was a young man, he was running from God and from the public's high expectations of him as the oldest son of the best-known preacher of our time. His teen and young-adult years were marred by smoking, drinking, fighting, confrontations with the police, and eventually, expulsion from college.
But finally, one night in a Middle East hotel room, God caught up with Franklin, and Graham's daredevil, destructive life was from that point forward transformed into a creative, God-glorifying adventure.
God instilled in Franklin a passion for the suffering and oppressed peoples of the world. Just six years after that hotel-room encounter with God, he was named president of Samaritan's Purse, a Christian relief and evangelism organization that meets emergency needs around the world.
In thrilling narrative after narrative, Rebel with a Cause recounts Franklin Graham's often dangerous adventures as a worldwide emissary of Christ's compassion: opening a medical clinic and orphanage in war-torn Rwanda; setting up a shelter in Croatia for Bosnian girls raped by enemy soldiers and now pregnant; organizing and training a chaplain's corps for the Nicaraguan Contra army; and reaching out to Muslim Saudi Arabians with "Operation Desert Save" during the Gulf War.

About the Author:

William Franklin Graham III serves as president of Samaritan's Purse, a Christian relief and evangelism organization.
