Billy Graham is kicking off a new evangelical crusade this November as he turns 95, and says the nation is ready for a new "spiritual awakening."
The beloved preacher will headline "My Hope America with Billy Graham" by speaking about Christ in an Internet and television broadcast that will feature segments produced at his beautiful country home in Montreat, N.C.

"It won't be a sermon, and it may not be his last [public] words. But it'll be an all new message from Mr. Graham about today," Ken Barun, chief of staff of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, told The Charlotte Observer
In a sneak preview of the crusade posted on the association's website, Graham enthusiastically urges the faithful to pledge their lives to Christ.

"I've been praying that we might have a spiritual awakening. But I think that becomes possible only as individuals surrender their lives anew to Christ," he says.
In the same video, Franklin Graham, who heads Graham's evangelistic association, reports that his father "has been praying how, at the end of his life, God may use him one more time to speak to this nation. ... He is limited by age, but his mind is keen."
The famed evangelist has just written a new book, "The Reason for My Hope," scheduled for release by Thomas Nelson Publishers in October.
