Americans Feel Good About Counseling

The Enduring Influence of Billy Graham

Evangelist Billy Graham has died at the age of 99 at his home in North Carolina. Widely considered the most significant religious figure of the twentieth century, it’s estimated that Graham preached the gospel—in person—to over 200 million people (more than any preacher in history) in 185 countries and to millions more via television and other media. Over the years, Barna’s polls have included questions about the influence of Billy Graham. In memory of this singular figure in American and Christian life, we’re revisiting some of these statistics, which serve as a testament to the enormous impact of a well-lived life.

In this release from the new report, we take a look at Gen Z’s views on faith, truth and the church.
