In 1952, encouraged by his friends Fred Dienert and Walter Bennett, Billy Graham began a spiritual advice column for the Chicago Tribune—New York News syndicate. Within one year, My Answer was syndicated in 73 daily newspapers across America. Today, it runs six days a week carried by several hundred newspapers and seen by millions of people around the world. My Answer offers the Bible’s timeless response to questions from readers on everything from religious, social, and ethical situations to marital problems and child rearing.
Billy has said, “people do not come to hear what I say—they want to know what God has to say.” The mail response from all over the world provides the evidence that people indeed are seeking answers. In each of his replies Billy points his readers back to the truth Himself—Jesus Christ, “the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). Billy also has said “I have yet to discover a source of practical advice and hope that compares to the wisdom found in the Bible.”
