Comic Books

August 1, 2011

These are items which are not displayed in our permanent exhibit but are offered here for online viewing.

This month we are featuring two comic books, Billy Graham with Cliff Barrows Presents The Story of Naaman the Leper and The Story of David and Goliath as told by Cliff Barrows, both published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA.)

Cliff Barrows, narrator of these comic books, is a long-time associate of Mr. Graham and host for The Hour of Decision radio program. Additionally, Mr. Barrows served as music and program director for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association for more than 60 years. In the early days of BGEA, Cliff would give dramatic presentations of Bible stories at special youth meetings which were part of a Billy Graham evangelistic campaign. His presentations were the basis of these comic books. BGEA printed and distributed these at the youth meetings from 1951 to 1953.
