Billy Graham preaching (black and white)The Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., is opening up a new exhibit to the public on Sunday that focuses on arguably the most famous evangelist of all time – Rev. Billy Graham. 

The much-anticipated exhibit opening up just months after world renowned evangelist Billy Graham’s death earlier this year is called “Pilgrim Preacher: Billy Graham, the Bible, and the Challenges of the Modern World.”

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) played a major role in making the exhibit possible, and Anthony Schmidt – the curator for the exhibit – says that there will be a focus on Graham's use of Scripture.

"His relationship with the Bible shaped his identity as a person, it shaped how he understood himself and the world around him, and he grounded his ministry in the Bible,” Schmidt pointed out. “It permeated everything about his ministry."

The curator told OneNewsNow that there will also be an emphasis on the evangelist's work in the 1960s and 1970s.

"That's when he was building the different aspects of his ministry that would make him famous – his radio program, his television appearances,” Schmidt explained. “He traveled most frequently in this period – [and] preached most frequently [then]. So, to tell that part of the story – which a lot of younger Americans don't really know any more – is, I think, one of the most interesting parts of the exhibit."

The Billy Graham exhibit in the nation’s capital at the Museum of the Bible – where it is also debuting its immersive virtual reality tour – runs through January of next year.
