The United States has gone through powerful phases of Spiritual Awakenings over the centuries. Very active revivalist preachers would elate crowds by using emotional language. Among them featured George Whitefield (1714-1770), Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) and, more recently, Billy Graham.

Billy Graham (6)

Billy Graham was the most popular preacher in the United States, who died in 2018 at the age of 100. This exceptional speaker electrified millions of spectators in stadiums, churches and on television, inviting them to turn to God and promising them the forgiveness of their sins through Jesus Christ. As a Baptist, he followed in the footsteps of great Revivalist preachers from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. From Truman to Trump, all presidents made him their confidant and advisor.
