The Rev. Franklin Graham is preparing to release a new book that shares a lifetime of memories, anecdotes, and stories from his internationally famous father, evangelist Billy Graham.

“I am grateful for the legacy I inherited from my parents,” the younger Graham said in a news release. “But I treasure more their testimonies that have beckoned many to the foot of the cross, giving millions the rich heritage of salvation in Jesus Christ. I want to tell the next generation about what Christ has done for all. 'One generation shall praise Your works to another' (Psalm 145:4).”

Graham’s publicist says it took almost eight years to complete the book, “Through My Father’s Eyes,” published by W Publishing Group and selling for $24.99.

“There is something uniquely special about a father-son relationship,” said Thomas Nelson, the senior vice president and publisher at W Publishing. "'Through My Father’s Eyes' is not only analogous to one’s relationship with a heavenly father, it is in this case a powerful look into a man and his message that only a son can provide. We’re honored to work with Franklin Graham on such an important and meaningful project.”

Franklin Graham is the fourth of five sons born to Billy and Ruth Bell Graham. He serves as president and chief executive officer of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

He recently said in an interview with WBTV in Charlotte, N.C., that his 95-year-old father, who has been hospitalized several times in recent months is “ready to go to Heaven.”

“My father is ready to go to Heaven and whenever that day comes — he’s ready,” Franklin Graham said. “He’s worked hard all of his life and faithful to preaching Gospel of Jesus Christ his entire life. And so he’s ready to go home and I’m praying that the Lord will leave him here a little longer.”
