Most of us know Billy Graham as the self-assured and charismatic preacher who became one of the most important figures of the 20th century. Now we can meet Billy as the earnest and promising young man at the crossroads of faith and doubt, ultimately facing the moment of decision that launched one of history's most powerful evangelistic ministries.

Billy: The Early Years paints its portrait of Graham against the backdrop of his relationship with Charles Templeton, another gifted young preacher whose faith would not withstand the onslaught of modern scientific skepticism. Templeton comes to personify the rising tide of disbelief into which Graham launched his crusades.

Filmed in Tennessee, the film captures the feel of the Depression-era tent revival where Graham heeded the altar call, and follows him through the doubt and resolution of the next decade. The movie's power rests in its honest portrayal of Billy's struggle with the ideas represented in Templeton's eventual unbelief and shows how Billy's faith goes on to help change the face of modern evangelism.
