Visitor Tips and News About Billy Graham Library - Journey of Faith
I was stranded in Charlotte, NC on a business trip so I decided the check out the Billy Graham Library. When the first thing I saw was an animatronic talking cow, I knew I was in for a treat.
You walk your way through elaborate exhibits and film strips dedicated to the life of mega-preacher Billy Graham. You move at their pace and guides are lurking everywhere, a little to excited to chat about how great Billy is. Doors slam behind you automatically as you enter a room where a new guide is waiting to engage you in awkward conversation. As you make your way through the place it becomes less and less about the history of Billy Graham and more about converting you.
Finally you are handed a card where you can check whether or not your soul was saved on this day. You also get to visit the burial site of Billy's wife.[Jacob Krejci, 04/10/2009]
