A response from Franklin Graham
The content lacks my fatherâ€™s greatest passion: to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the world and point men, women, and children to His saving power.
While the movie covers many aspects of my fatherâ€™s early years, it depicts events that never happened or are greatly embellished.
My fatherâ€™s life has been documented in many ways and I have always appreciated those who painstakingly sought to tell his story accurately.
