Billy Graham at his 95th birthday celebration

BOONE, N.C. — To celebrate Billy Graham’s 96th birthday, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association will debut “Heaven,” a film that includes a never-before-seen message from Billy Graham.

Graham’s message was recorded last year, while the aging yet still passionate evangelist worked with a camera crew to capture his thoughts in a series of interviews at his home in Montreat.

When Graham celebrated his 95th birthday last year in Asheville, 800 guests gathered to watch “The Cross,” a 30-minute program that was the first of a five-year project called “My Hope with Billy Graham.”

“Heaven” can be purchased on DVD and can also be viewed at
