Billy Graham named again among the 10 most admired men in the world

Billy Graham named again among the 10 most admired men in the world

Posted on January 15, 2017

“Gallup released its annual list at the end of 2016 after asking Americans to name the one man, living anywhere in the world, whom they admire most. Mr. Graham received fifth place on the list. According to the Gallup Poll, “This year marks the 60th time Graham has finished in the top 10 -- a Gallup record. That includes making it into the top 10 every year since 1955, with the exception of the 1962 survey and in 1976, when the question was not asked.”

"Graham's record is likely to endure for a long time. His closest competitor for number of times on the list is former President Ronald Reagan, who died in 2004. Reagan made the list 31 times," reports the Charlotte Observer.

“Graham is widely known as a pastor to presidents and a much-loved evangelist. He has spent most of his life preaching to the masses. It’s been estimated that he has preached the Gospel to 200 million people in over 180 countries during his years of traveling with the Billy Graham Crusades.”
