Evangelist Billy Graham died this week. We published more than two dozen articles on our site as part of our special commemorative coverage. But when someone lived 99 years, it can be hard to capture a life, even with this volume of pieces.

This week on Quick to Listen, Grant Wacker, historian and author of America’s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation, joined associate editor Morgan Lee and editor in chief Mark Galli to talk about the regrets, paradoxes, and surprises in the life of one of the most prolific religious leaders of our time.
